Chunky Avocado Salsa

This chunky avocado salsa recipe is a great meat-free alternative. It’s sure to please vegetarians and meat lovers alike. This salsa is super easy to make where you just need to dice some avocados, jalapenos, tomatoes, and onions, hit it with some lime juice, throw in some cilantro, and finish things off with a touch of salt.





How to Make Chunky Avocado Salsa 

Avocado: Scoop out the avocado, gently work a spoon between the flesh and the skin of the avocado. Following the curve of the avocado with the bowl of the spoon, scoop avocado out of the shell, then cut into chunks.




Tomatoes: Cut tomato in half and scoop out seeds, then dice.  Getting rid of the pulpy seeds in your tomatoes can seem like a lot of extra work, but it's worth it. ... If you didn't remove the seeds, they will make the salsa extra watery.


Tomatoes seeded








Onions: White or Red onions diced
Cilantro: Fresh and chopped
Jalapeños: 2 jalapeños is used for this recipe but you can use 1 for less heat. Seed, scrape membrane from jalapenos, and dice.
Add garlic powder, lime juice, and salt to taste.


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and gently toss to together with a fork.

This rich cake gets its moist texture from soaking in milk. Serve it chilled and with whipped cream, melted chocolate, or dulce de leche. It is a simply unfussy and tasty dessert that is somewhat neutral, so it can take many variations. Of course, you can add some fruit on top or in between, fresh strawberries work really nice here, it's your choice.
