The end of summer doesn’t have to get you down.
What better way to celebrate than being surrounded by friends and family, at a picnic, BBQ, or just a friendly gathering.
No matter how you celebrate it…
You will want a DELICIOUS DISH in hand!
You can’t show up empty-handed.
I’ve got you covered with this amazing Avocado Salsa.
It is a perfect summer dish and your taste buds will be left wanting more!
Avocado Salsa is a beautifully vibrant dip that pleases both the eyes and taste buds.
Now, I have a few tips on how to pick the best avocados for a recipe like this.
First, always check the skin pigmentation of the avocados you are picking. Avocado colors will shift depending on how ripe they are. Ones that are a vibrant green have been picked early and are under-ripe. And those that are completely brown are overly ripe. So choose an avocado with a nice forest green color.
Second, do a pressure test of sorts. Give the avocado a very gentle little squeeze with the palm of your hand. If the fruit is ripe, it will feel just a smidge soft. Otherwise, avocados that are extremely ripe will feel like mush.
Third, check its naval. Avocados have a naval-belly button-looking spot on them. Try placing your thumb on this part of the fruit. If you can flick the naval off, the avocado is officially ripe. If the naval is tightly intact, it’s not ready to eat just yet. And if the naval is completely missing, skip that avocado as that end may be slightly brown on the inside.
While this recipe uses similar ingredients to a guacamole recipe, the chunky texture is what makes it so unique. Be sure you don’t buy mushy, overly-ripe avocados because you do want the salsa to hold its shape.
While this is a great summer recipe – it’s also something you can enjoy year-round! Flavors like this have no time limit 🙂
