Guacamole Salad

1 ripe avocado

2 TBSP salsa (my favorite is Trader Joe’s Chunky Salsa)

1 scallion, chopped (grow them on the windowsill so you also have a few available)

1/2  chopped shallot or sweet onion

1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered or halved

1 cup sliced red and yellow sweet mini peppers

1/4 cup (about a handful) chopped parsley or cilantro

Juice of  1 lime or about 1 TBSP Nelly & Joe Key Lime juice (it’s always in the fridge)

1/4 tsp each salt and pepper (add more if desired)

Sprinkle of red pepper flakes or 1 tsp of Sriracha (also always in the fridge)

  1. In a medium bowl, lightly mash up avocado and salsa – leave chunks – don’t make it super smooth
  2. Add all the chopped vegetables, lime juice and salt, pepper
  3. Mix it into a chunky guacamole – it’s not the usual kind, but avocados are hard to find – and it’s still delicious!
  4. Serve as a side to the main protein or with a bowl of tortilla chips
