Avocado Salsa

It’s possible that I have a secret obsession with avocados.  Guacamole and I are very close friends.  I get really excited when I see avocado slices on a sandwich and SHUT the DOOR when they show up in my salads!  Well, today I have a simple and classic avocado salsa.  Delicious  with corn chips or a perfect accompaniment for these Sweet Potato Burritos.

Avocados are packed with mono-unsaturated fats, which should be a vital part of your daily diet.  They are also a great source of potassium and folate, so eat up!

Avocado Salsa

  • 1 Small Tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 Red Onion, finely diced
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 Avocado, chopped
  • 1 Lime, juiced
  • Dash of Cumin
  • Dash of Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Cilantro

This is such a simple recipe.

Chop the tomato…

Finely dice the red onion…

Mince the clove of garlic…

Peel and chop the avocado…

Juice 1 lime, this is key to prevent the avocado from browning plus it really livens everything up…

Add fresh cilantro…

Combine and serve!  Yes, it really is that simple!
