And…we’re back! Our vacation in Europe is over and I have bittersweet feelings about it. We spent the last few days in Paris (where we used to live before moving to Sydney) and quite frankly, I found this city way too stressful so I’m really glad to be back!

I just wish I could take my friends and family with me… Coming back home was quite an adventure; we had the worst trip ever!

All of our flights were delayed, we had big issues with Vietnamese immigration, Solal was very sick and our bags got lost (and as I’m writing this post, we’re still missing one bag). We won’t fly with Vietnam Airlines again, that’s for sure. In the end, it took us more than 38 hours to fly back to Sydney! Not cool at all!

Anyway, I am now happily back in the kitchen and working on my eCookbook! This Summery Corn Tomato Avocado Salad is the perfect side dish to any meat or fish.

If you’re vegetarian, you could make this Tomato Avocado Salad a complete meal by adding some black beans for protein and double the ingredients for a more substantial serving. Hello, Mexican Avocado Salad!

Is this a good salad recipe for meal prep, you ask? YES! You can make this easy healthy salad ahead of time and add the avocado at the last moment. Guys, you will love how fresh, tasty and easy to make this Corn Tomato and Avocado Salad is!

  1. Glad you made it back to Sydney safely. If you need to use a southeast Asian airline, Malaysia Air is wonderful, despite the downed plane. They know how to get your luggage to stay with you even under adverse circumstances. That is probably the best airline I’ve flown on. China Air is also good, and I understand that Thai Silk is also excellent (haven’t flown with them, though). Hope you can get your missing bag back. Soon. And another bit of advice: if you want to have your luggage go with you, do not fly United (a US airline). They lost baggage for a lady on the long cruise and she didn’t get it for 24 days…

    1. Thanks Susan 🙂 I agree with you, Malaysia Airline is good. We flew with them 2 years ago when we moved to Sydney and it was good. I finally got my bag back and nothing’s missing so that’s great!
