Avocado Salsa

Our family loves avocado.  The ingredients in this salsa are similar to most guacamole recipes.  But chopping it up as a salsa makes it easier for the kids to pick out the parts they like best.  I actually like to eat this as a small side salad, while my husband likes to spoon it on top of his favorite Mexican dishes.  It would also make a delicious appetizer served with tortilla chips.


Avocado Salsa

2 medium avocados, chopped
¼ - ½ red onion*, chopped
8-9 oz strawberry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, chopped
2 T cilantro, chopped
½ t garlic powder
½ t seasoned salt
¼ t freshly ground black pepper
1 T lime juice (optional)

Mix all ingredients.  Stir and serve immediately.  If you will not be serving immediately, mix in 1 T of lime juice.  This will keep the avocado from browning as quickly.  Serves 6-8

* My husband and I really enjoy onion.  The salsa in this picture was made with half of a red onion.  If you do not like a lot of onion, start with one-forth of an onion.
