Tomato, Avocado Lime salad
What could this be . . . a recipe?!? Oh yes, my friends – I still have a kitchen and I still eat food, although you won’t know it from the lack of recipes on the blog lately!
But I got a little motivation this morning and made up this Tomato, Avocado Lime salad – and I can’t decide if it’s a salad, a relish or a salsa. You’ll have to make it and decide for yourself.
With summer season on the horizon, tomatoes should be easy to find under $1/lb and avocados should be under $1 each (check WinCo for the best price!). Making this an inexpensive salad to whip up on a hot summer day when you don’t want to cook.
I’m going to suggest – eating it like a salad, topping your burger with it, scooping it with chips or using as a relish on grilled chicken (or fish). But of course, you can do whatever you want with it.
2 medium ripe tomatoes, diced finely (I used tomatoes on the vine)
1 firm avocado, diced
1 yellow (or orange) pepper, seeded and diced finely
1/3 cup diced red onion, diced finely
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice (or be a rebel and use lemon)
salt and pepper to taste
optional – a pinch of cumin
HOW TO PREPARE
1.) Dice up all your ingredients. Toss into bowl.
2.) Add olive oil, vinegar and lime juice. Salt to taste.
3.) Eat while it’s fresh!
The lime juice should keep the avocados from discoloring. The balsamic vinegar gives the whole salad a darker look – but the flavor can’t be missed!
