Avocado Salsa {contributor Sara}

Welcome back Sara with this yummy avocado salsa! Hi everyone! It’s Sara from over at Bitz & Giggles! I hope you all are enjoying the summer as much as I am! Although the start of school is just around the corner, I’m not quite ready for some of the apple and pumpkin recipes I’ve been seeing around already.

Avocado Salsa

We’re still enjoying our grill and the wonderful fresh vegetables from our little deck garden and the local farmer’s market! Today, I’m sharing a recipe for super fresh, delicious Avocado Salsa.

When it comes to snacking, there aren’t too many things that I enjoy more than dipping a chip into fresh salsa. It’s just one of those things I’m not sure I could get through the summer without. I haven’t always loved avocados and tomatoes. It’s funny how your tastes change over the years. There are many things I would have never tried years ago that I absolutely love now. Lobster and shrimp are also in that category.

Are there any foods that you feel that way about? Food you wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole years ago but now can’t get enough of?

Avocado is another one of those foods for me. It just never appealed to me. I still am not a big fan of eating it just by itself, but when it’s mixed with vegetables like tomatoes and onions, it turns into the star of the show – like it is in this dish. I scored a huge avocado for this salsa at the market. Instead of just tossing out the skin, I decided to use it as a serving dish. Wouldn’t this be an awesome way to serve individually portioned salsa appetizers?

I think so. I know I’d be delighted if I showed up at a party and someone had a few of these prepared and waiting on the food tale. Yes, please! I would just hang out at the food table all night. Isn’t that where everyone congregates anyway?

I’m just so happy that tastes DO change and as we get older we’re willing to try new foods and different things. Am I making anyone feel better about getting older?

Hey, we’re in this aging thing together. I actually feel like I’m doing something good for my body by eating this salsa. Everything is fresh and good for you. There should really be no guilt here. If you’re having trouble believing that, pretend the chip isn’t there. Or. . . try putting the salsa on something else. Like. . .how about some Cilantro Lime Chicken?
