What’s better than salsa in the summertime? Full of bright seasonal flavor, quick to make, with no baking required, a big bowl of fresh-chopped salsa is an ideal appetizer for backyard barbecues and afternoon snacks. And with recipe, same-old tomato salsa gets an extra tasty twist.
Swapping salsa’s traditionally savory flavor with sweet fruit and creamy pieces of avocado, this incredible salsa tastes jut like summer. Sweet apples, tart strawberries, a pinch of fresh mint and zingy lime juice. This recipe is seriously delicious.
A batch can be served with traditional corn tortilla chips. But pair it with sweet potato chips or cinnamon pita chips for serious yum. It also tastes great spooned across grilled chicken or tossed into pasta.
For best results, prep this recipe right before it’s time to serve. Though lime juice will keep the avocado from browning quickly, the mixture will start to weep and wilt if chopped and mixed hours before serving.
This salsa is tasty, but tender. Take care to not over-stir the mixture. And consider serving it in single-sized bowls or ramekins, like the Good Cook 4-oz Ceramic Ramekins, which come with a seal-tight lid. Or top them with one of our colorful silicone lids, which can be sealed with a single press of the finger. No finicky peeling or pulling required to remove these toppers!
