Tomato & Avocado Salsa

by Kimberly Hickok

This recipe came about by accident. I didn’t have enough tomatoes for salsa or enough avocados for guacamole so I mixed up what I had and came up with this:

Tomato & Avocado Salsa
(yields about 2 cups)
 1 large tomato, chopped
1 Hass avocado, cut into small cubes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
Salt & pepper

Combine all the vegetables. Cut the lemon and the lime in half and squeeze the fresh juice into the vegetable mix. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit for 15 minutes. Taste again and add more juice or salt and pepper if needed.

It’s great for dipping, on top of fajitacos and with turkey-bacon sandwiches.
