Lemon Chicken with Avocado & Corn Salsa Recipe

"I heard they are testing a new eye surgery for color blindness and are asking for volunteers. My friends are encouraging me to do it. They´re saying the grass is greener on the other side".

No disrespect to anyone who suffers from this condition but as far as color goes, this healthy dish is bursting with it. 

This is a very healthy salsa dish which will give your day a real boost. The red jalapeños really give the kick here but the sweet corn and cherry tomatoes balance the flavor.

The preperation for the salsa is super quick and easy and it is interesting to know that a meal with so few ingredients can be so satisfying.
