Avocado Salsa Salad

Whole30 avocado salsa salad

Once summer arrives I gravitate towards the really fresh and simple meals. This avocado salad is a personal favorite light lunch option, or as a side dish with dinner. It’s perfect for summer, refreshing and so delicious. Grilled chicken or fresh fish would be a fantastic counterpart to this salad.  Even though I’m not doing Whole30, that’s originally how I found this recipe and it’s become a staple ever since. With fresh ingredients you don’t need much to make it taste good!

Avocado Salsa Salad
via made by jayne

1 ripe avocado, chopped
2 medium roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 red onion, diced
1/2 chili (adjust according to your preference)
1/2 red pepper, chopped
cucumber, 4-5 inches chopped
3 mushrooms, chopped (optional)
juice of half a lime
1 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste
red pepper flakes (optional)

Chop all of the vegetables and add to a bowl. Whisk together the lime juice, olive oil and salt and pepper. Pour over the vegetables and stir to evenly coat. Allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.

I also added red pepper flakes to mine for an extra kick!

Served on this bowl that’s part of our wedding china set (I’m obsessed). Why should the pretty pieces only be used for special occasions?

    I completely agree! Our set is dishwasher safe so why not right? That salad looks like something that would be on major repeat for the hot Summer days!

    This is one of those “why didn’t I think to do that!?” recipes for sure. Love this and cannot wait to try it! Bet it’d be good as a type of Bruschetta, too 😉

    I love that you used the wedding china! I personally don’t have any, but I remember my Mom NEVER using hers and it drove me crazy. What a waste! Anyways, this looks great! I am totally about the salsa/salads/anything cold right now. And I will never not eat an avacado 😉
