Remember those tin lunchboxes everyone had as a kid? They were sturdy little lunch pails that held everything from your sandwich and juice box to your pudding or fruit cup. Sometimes they even had a Fruit-by-the-foot inside, and everything fit together perfectly--a little bit like a well-played game of Tetris. 

The Tin Lunchbox (that's us!) does the same thing: We provide a variety of shared information from featured artists and literary endeavors to recipe sharing that all fits flawlessly into one place. Granted, we aren't working with physical  lunchboxes, but it is fun to imagine all the same.

Chunky Avocado Salad

Shawna Caro

Tonight I went  to a birthday party for my friend's daughter and son. Yes, it was a co-birthday party, but they don't mind they're only 4 and 1 (respectively). Another party-goer brought this amazing dip she called "Avocado Salad." I asked how she made it, and she gave me the basics. I couldn't resist and I really dove in. Honestly, this Avocado Salad is probably the best avocado-based dip I've had in a long time. Maybe ever! 

Chunky Avocado Salad

2-6 avocados, cut into small chunks

2 tomatoes, diced

1 purple onion, diced

1 1/2-2 cups sweet corn

1 can black beans, drained

garlic powder or garlic salt (to taste) 

cilantro (to taste)

1/2 lime, squeezed (substitute lime juice for smaller amount)

Cut avocados, tomatoes, and onion. Mix together with drained corn and beans. Add cilantro, garlic, and lime until the taste is satisfactory. Note: the measurements listed above are estimates based on the amount I prefer, and can be adjusted based on your desire.
