Chunky Avocado and Tomato SalsaBy Toni Fiore • Jul 7th, 2007 • Category: Light Bites Print
Chunky Avocado and Tomato Salsa
This salsa is similar to guacamole but without the bite of garlic or the heaviness of sour cream. It’s light and tasty and is terrific not only as a topping but as a stand alone salad or roll up filling. If you want feel free to add more tomatoes. Totally adjustable, you can modify this recipe to cater to your own personal preferences and tastes.
1 ripe but firm avocado
½ yellow onion, coarsely chopped
Half of a lime, juiced (or more to taste)
½ pint fresh cherry tomatoes, quartered or halved depending on the size
3-4 T. chopped cilantro, optional
A few pinches of chipotle powder (or cayenne, chopped fresh jalapeño, or pepper flakes), optional
Salt and black pepper
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Squeeze on the lime juice and sprinkle with a little salt. Lime juice has a tendency to bring out the salty flavor in food, so go with a lighter hand and readjust seasonings just prior to serving. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld.
