    Avocado Salsa Recipe

    I’ve received a lot of questions on my Cilantro Lime Chicken {which is a must-try recipe, especially in January when you might be counting calories} about the pretty avocado salsa that I topped the chicken with.

    It’s such a simple recipe that I never thought about sharing it, but after several requests, I’m happy to oblige!

    This simple avocado salsa recipe is a delicious and beautiful way to top chicken, tacos and especially salads. It pairs well with my Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette! I love eating it with tortilla chips as well.

    How Long Does Avocado Salsa Keep?

    Unfortunately, due to the perishability of the avocados, this salsa doesn’t keep as long as most salsas. This avocado salsa has a refrigerator life of about 1-2 days. After that period the avocados will likely begin to brown.

    The upside of this is that it’s such a delicious recipe, it probably won’t last in your house that long anyway!

    Tips for Cutting an Avocado

    • On a cutting board, cut the avocado in half lengthwise until you feel the knife hit the pit.
    • Rotate the avocado to cut all the way around the pit
    • Insert the knife into the pit with force, then twist the knife and pull out the pit
    • To dice the avocado, cut squares in the flesh making a grid, and scoop it out with a spoon.
