Florida Avocado Salsa

By Kelly Elkins

This refreshing salsa is perfect for any of your summertime gatherings. I followed the recipe exactly except I left off the cilantro because my husband isn’t a big fan of it but I wish I would have added it for extra flavor. Other than that, the salsa turned out perfectly!

If you are serving the sala with tortilla chips, make sure to cut the avocado into smaller pieces to make it easier to scoop up. Also, I think a little bit of lime juice would give the salsa a little extra zest. Enjoy!
