Chunky Avocado and Tomato Salsa

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.

I just discovered your show! How do I find on your website the recipe aired on TV 1/5/11 or 1/6/11 for Picata?

Hi Rita, There's a bit of a computer glitch in some of the recipes, but I've corrected this one for you! As far as the show airing in NYC, you might have to call your station and request the show or get a current schedule. We've had numerous emails from viewers of channel 25 write and ask the same question. Please let us know how you fare. Thanks!

Hard to read amounts of onion, lime and tomatoes in recipe - is it "one & one-half" onion, lime and pint tomatoes or "one-half"? Secondly, when will the third season episodes begin airing on channel 25 in New York City? Thanks.
