Strawberry and Avocado Salsa

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In an effort to clean out my fridge this weekend, I created this INCREDIBLE strawberry and avocado salsa. Travis and I love making a mango-avocado salsa to serve on top of tilapia or halibut, but strawberries were the only fruit I had left in the fridge this time. In all honesty, the strawberries I had on hand were a little too ripe (borderline squishy), but I knew it wouldn’t matter for a salsa. Heck, you’re mashing up everything anyway, right!?

I tried to utilize every flavor of summer I had left in my fridge, mixing in cilantro, lime, and scallions. I took one bite of the final product and LOVED it. I served it to Travis (who was engrossed with Sunday afternoon football) with a big bowl of multi-grain tortilla chips and by the time I came back at least half of the salsa was gone! So yeah…it’s THAT good. He told me it was almost a waste to eat it with chips because it tastes so “fancy,” so next time I am going to make it with grilled chicken for the perfect weeknight dinner.
