It’s easy to combine garden favorites into a mild fresh salsa that pairs perfectly with unique, grilled fresh California avocado.
Preparation 15 min | Cook Time 3 min | Total Time 18 min
Super Spicy Variation: Protecting your hand with rubber gloves, trim two to three thin slices from a habanero pepper. Mince and stir into the salsa.
Tip: To easily peel the tomatoes, slice an “X” across the top of each tomato. Using tongs, submerge the tomatoes into a pot of boiling water for 10 seconds. Cool, then peel the tomato skins starting from the center of the “X”.
Beverage Pairings: Try with a cold beer or fresh fruit drink.
* Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
