Fresh Avocado Salsa

I can remember the first time I saw an avocado. My 10-year-old self was repulsed by the creamy green visual. I scoffed and asked – “who would eat that, on purpose?” Uhhh… ME! (several years later)

There are countless ways to eat an avocado – but this chunky avocado salsa has become my go to because it is quick, easy and full of summer flavor.

It is perfect as a dip with chips or fresh veggies, on a bed of lettuce or front and center on top of a grilled main dish.

Bring it along to your next party or picnic and wow your guests! Even the 10 year olds… as my children can attest!

Fresh Avocado Salsa

2 Large ripe avocado, chopped
Yellow or orange pepper, chopped
Half a medium red onion, diced
Pint of cherry tomatoes, quartered
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 TBLS Olive Oil
Juice of 2 limes (2-3 TBLS)
1 TBLS red wine vinegar
½ tsp chipotle powder
salt to taste (I use about ½ tsp)

Peel and remove seed from avocados then chop into chunks, place in large mixing bowl. Remove seeds and membranes from yellow pepper then chop into chunks, add to bowl. Dice red onion, add to bowl. Cut cherry tomatoes into quarters, add to bowl. Roughly chop cilantro, add to bowl. Add remaining ingredients to mixing bowl then stir till well blended.

Cover and refrigerate till ready to serve.
