     When you have left over corn on the cob, a huge beautiful avocado, home made honey from your neighbors bee's, and your cast iron skillet itching to come out and play, what do you get ... a colorful salad that is bursting with flavor !!!  This is a salad you can feel free to add or subtract according to your hearts desire, with summer time you may have all kinds of produce to play with, so get creative and enjoy the taste of warmer weather !!!  ;)

1 pint Cherry Tomatoes, halves
1 large Avocado, diced
1-2 ears cooked Corn on the Cob, shaved
1/2-1 loose cup of Cilantro Leaves
2 diced Green Onions
1 can tri colored Beans, or Black Beans
