Ingredients

  • 3 avocados
  • 1 roma tomato
  • 1/4 of a red onion
  • 2 tablespoons of cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of lime juice
  • dash of hot sauce
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • First, slice your avocados. Use hass avocados if you have access to them – they’re big and rich. Slice the avocado in half and then score into cubes and use a spoon to release.
  • Next, dice the roma tomato and the red onion. Side note, I deseed the tomato – only using the meaty outer part. That way the salsa doesn’t get mushy.
  • Set the diced tomato and onion in a bowl and add in the chopped cilantro, garlic, and lime juice. Add a few dashes of hot sauce, stir, and let it sit for about 3 minutes.
  • Then, add in the avocado and salt to taste.
  • Mix up and then eat up. I suggest eating it right away. If you’re looking to make it ahead of time, then mix everything except the avocados. Cut those last, even in front of guests, so they’re nice and bright green. It’s the easiest way to ensure the vibrant colour of the salsa.
