Dad’s Salsa


I shared this recipe with fellow Sac Foodies at our anniversary potluck.

Like most of my dad’s recipes, this was adapted from a recipe in an old Bon Appétit magazine. It’s a chunky salsa with a twist – avocado. Don’t be surprised if people are scooping right for the avocado chunks!

4 large tomatoes
3-4 green onions, chopped
1/2  cup cilantro, finely chopped (packed)
2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2  tablespoons fresh lime juice
1-2 jalepenos or Serrano chiles, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
1 avocado, chopped

Add all ingredients except avocado to bowl and stir to combine. Once combined, add avocado and gently stir.

    Wow who diced those tomatoes?

    Okay – to set the record straight, I must give props to my boyfriend Jordan for chopping all of the salsa ingredients for me. A tip – if you don’t have a Jordan to do your chopping, use a food processor! 🙂

    YUM! That looks so good – although I must admit I’d be the first to hog all the avocado to myself!
