Chunky Avocado Salsa



Fresh, simple and so delicious.  This avocado salsa will become your summer staple!


So yesterday was filled to the brim.

Six a.m. wake-up call from the 10 month old, taking the eldest to preschool, getting the baby down for her morning nap, going on a long walk listening to this podcast, taking the two older kids to the dentist, having lunch here, running to the store for avocados, turning in Kindergarten forms, coming home to prep dinner, reading a bit on the deck while the kids played in the yard and FINALLY eating this avocado salsa along with our Taco Tuesday dinner.

Whew.

You see when I went on my morning walk, I starting thinking about avocados and salsa. Then quickly had a "ding, ding, ding" moment.

Why not put the two together?


Honestly, late afternoon could not come soon enough, knowing I was going to make this as a side with dinner.  It was all I was thinking about!

I managed to even photograph this before I took a bite.  I rarely do that.  Why waste time taking photos if it doesn't taste good and I end up not blogging about?

But, you see, I just KNEW this would be good.  It smelled great.  It looked great.  Just how could all of these ingredients put together not work well together?


This one and only batch was gone when Taco Tuesday was over.  Sadly, no leftovers.  I will be making this again.  I do think it would also be tasty on grilled chicken or fish, or stuffed into an egg roll wrapper and fried.  What???

Yeah, I said it.

And great news.  I made this around 3:00 p.m. and worried that the avocados would turn brown before I needed to photograph it and later eat it, but it was fine.  The lemon juice helps and so does covering it and placing it in the fridge to chill.

So even better news.  You can make this a bit ahead of time and take it to a party.  You will be the HIT.  Everyone will be asking for the recipe.

So please direct them to my website {shameless plug}.

  6. I love this! I make something similar but smoother...but I could eat this every day! As it is, my kids eat guacamole for an after school snack several days a week. We love our avocados here!
