Chopped Avocado Salad

Updated on June 15, 2014

Easy and Fresh for Summer

Summer is a time for fresh vegetables and tasty salads. I like this Chopped Avocado Salad because it is bursting with flavor and so easy to make. It compliments just about any main dish, but my favorite is to serve it with something from the grill such as shrimp or salmon. If you prefer to skip the seafood, a side of beans and corn will make a nice substitute. Add tortilla chips for fun.

  • Dressing:
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

  • 1 cup chopped tomato, seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion

      De-lish! Lots of my favorite foods all in one bowl. Think I'll pick up the ingredients I don't have on hand and serve this with warmed tortillas for a light supper tonight. Thank you!
