Fatigue Buster

  • Corn Stripper

    Instead of cutting the corn off the cob with a knife, try a corn stripping tool.

  • Make Ahead

    Make salad ahead of time and only dice avocados right before you plan to serve.

  • Corn

    Use 2 cups of frozen or canned corn in place of the grilled corn.
