We're lucky to live very close to "America's Foodiest Town," aka, Boulder, Colorado. And although the word "foodiest" makes me break out in hives, it is great to have access to Boulder's thriving restaurant scene. One of the many excellent restaurants in Boulder is Centro Latin Kitchen and Refreshment Palace. Centro has a very delicious (and rather pricy) avocado salsa which was the inspiration for this recipe and would be another great Cinco de Mayo treat.
Essentially a fresh salsa with large chunks of avocado, or a guacamole which didn't get the mortar-and-pestle treatment, avocado salsa lets you really savor all of the fresh ingredients.
- 1 large avocado, chopped 1/2 inch chunks
- 1 medium tomato, chopped
- 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
- 2 tbs cilantro, chopped
- juice of 1 lime
- kosher salt, to taste
Gently combine all ingredients and serve with tortilla chips! This would serve 2-3, but you can easily double or triple the recipe as needed.
