Strawberry Avocado Salsa
Chips and dip as a meal is totally a thing in my house, especially when I'm home alone (rare, but glorious!). When ripe juicy berries are in season, I forgo my typical guacamole and opt for this sweet strawberry avocado salsa. It's a quick and easy recipe, packed with vitamins and nutrients, and surprisingly filling. If you're not into snack meals, that's okay - this salsa is perfect for a party spread, or as a topping for grilled chicken or pan-seared fish.
