When I start to tell someone about my avocado salsa and they respond with some quip about “isn’t that called guacamole?” I gently point out the difference. Guacamole is fucking blended and avocado-forward. Avocado salsa is fucking diced, fresh, and remains tomato forward. I like to use avocado salsa more as a filling than a dip so I’ll put it in tacos, enchiladas, or taquitos and serve it with a hot salsa on the side.
Fish is also usually great served with avocado salsa.
I have nothing against guacamole, but this is a fun alternative to try before all of your slowly softening avocados become compost. I tend to be pretty precise with my recipes (I guess because of my background as a baker) but feel free to monkey with this one and add/subtract/edit as necessary.
5 roma tomatos (diced)
1 red onion (finely chopped)
2 large jalapenos (chopped)*
like very spicy! If you want to tone yours down a bit, use 1 large jalapeno and
remove the seeds!
2 large avocados (cubed)
Splash of olive oil
Splash of lime juice
2 large garlic cloves (finely minced)
I like very spicy! Add garlic to your taste!
