I’m addicted to this stuff. Seriously. I can’t get enough of it. I eat it on my eggs in the mornings, as a side “salad” with lunch, and piled high on top of fish or chicken for supper. It is becoming a bit of a problem. I like to make my avocado salsa more on the chunky side, but if you like yours a bit smoother, just pop it into the blender or use an immersion blender to smooth it out to the consistency you prefer. Easy, easy.

Cool, creamy and crunchy all in one bite, avocado salsa has to be one of my favorite recipes. With a squeeze of lime, this salsa recipe becomes even brighter and brings together flavors for so many delicious dishes.

It truly is perfect to make and have on hand in the refrigerator for a quick snack with chips or to pile on top of a fish taco or a simple piece of roasted chicken. I have to tell you, I also love it on top of my scrambled eggs in the mornings, too! It just makes them sing! But, if you are having friends stop by or are entertaining, this definitely needs to be on your must-make list! Fair warning though, it will go quickly! You might want to consider making double or triple the recipe, you’ll be glad you did!

    I gave my son this recipe and he made it last night. It was sooo good! We couldn’t stop eating it! Thanks for the recipe

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      I’m so glad you both enjoyed it! xo

  3. Emily T. says:

    I actually make something similar to this all the time during summer- I leave out the jalapeño and cilantro, and just call it my summer salad.

  4. Jane says:

    This looks delicious!!!! I am trying to get hubby and I to eat better and this might just do the trick. Could I substitute the jalapeno pepper without ruining it?

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      You can omit it if you’d prefer not to have it. You’ll still have tons of flavor from the other ingredients.

    2. Margo Haynes says:

      You could also use a bit of deseeded of those miniature bell peppers in different colors to add some more color unless he’s averse to any type of pepper period!

  5. Gaby says:

    This has my name written all over it! So gorgeous!

  6. Aggie says:

    Oh Robyn, I would devour this!! Delicious!

  7. jody says:

    this is absolutely one of my favorite flavor combos. Throw in some Halibut cooked lime, you have my favorite Ceviche. That stuff, I could eat every day, so I’m going g to have to try this out!
