This avocado salsa recipe is fresh, hearty and delicious! Serve it as party dip, taco filling or more. You’re going to love this easy avocado salsa. Recipe yields about 6 cups.
3 large ripe avocados or 4 small-to-medium avocados, diced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 cup chopped red onion (about 1 small onion)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 to 2 medium jalapeños, seeded and minced (if sensitive to spice, use just 1 or omit)
1/4 cup lime juice (from 1 to 2 limes)
1 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander (optional)*
In a large serving bowl, combine all of the ingredients as listed. Gently toss to combine (don’t over-mix, or the avocados will turn everything green!). Taste, and add more salt if it doesn’t taste quite spectacular enough.
Serve promptly, as the avocado will brown over time. To store leftovers, try to minimize the amount of oxygen by using a container that’s just the right size, or press plastic wrap directly against the avocado. It will keep in the refrigerator this way for 1 to 2 days.
*Coriander note: I love adding a bit of ground coriander to my Mexican avocado recipes. Coriander is simply ground cilantro seeds, and it adds a subtle layer of flavor. That said, you can omit it if you don’t have it or don’t like it.
Prepare in advance: If you want to be sure your avocado doesn’t brown before the party, I think you could prepare everything but the avocado, toss it all together in a serving bowl, and refrigerate until you’re about ready to serve. Then dice the avocado and gently stir it in.
