My family always enjoys something saucy on grilled meats, and the following tomato and avocado salsa provides complementary flavor with ease.  It complements the sazón seasoning I shared earlier this week quite nicely, yet it’s endlessly versatile.

Use it in place of guacamole on your favorite south-of-the-border fare or to perk up simply prepared fish.  The flavors will enhance the likes of eggs, beans, and a variety of grains and can be served as a dip with tortilla chips.

Combine some cooked rice and chicken or beef (pork carnitas if you have them – and leftovers are fair game is all cases) along with some black beans, corn, and/or slaw. Add a squirt of sriracha if you like things a little spicy.  Suddenly you have a new favorite (and really easy) burrito bowl!

Think of this salsa as a convenient way to add fresh flavor year-round, as off-season grape tomatoes provide an acceptable substitute once the vine-ripened varieties are finished for the year.

Enjoy this salsa all year round in the following ways:

  • As a simple salsa for chicken (😉⇩) and fish
  • On tacos, quesadillas, and enchiladas…
  • Or in place of guacamole in a variety of other Tex-Mex fare
  • Stir in cooked shrimp or black beans for a protein-rich salad
  • Enjoy as a dip with your favorite tortilla chips
  • Spoon over scrambled eggs or an omelet
  • Mix into cooked rice or grain of choice

Avocado Tomato Salsa
Yield: approximately 2 cups
This super simple salsa adds flavor and flare to chicken, fish, beans, salads, and eggs. Or use it in place of guacamole in your favorite south-of-the-border recipes or as a dip with tortilla chips!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup diced plum tomatoes*
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (may use parsley if not a fan)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (may add an extra teaspoon or so to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium avocado, diced (ripe but not too soft)
  • Optional: 1/2 a small jalapeño (seeded to reduce heat if desired) or a pinch or two of crushed red pepper flakes
Instructions

In a medium bowl, combine the tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Gently fold in the avocado.

Serve the salsa over chicken, fish, pork, or as an option to regular tomato salsa or guacamole on your favorite dishes that call for them—like tacos, burrito bowls, eggs, and salads.  Or serve as a dip with tortilla chips.

Notes & Tips

*I’ve also used grape tomatoes and vine-ripened tomatoes for this salsa with great success.  To avoid a watered-down salsa, I recommend draining off any excess liquid from juicy tomatoes.  Along these lines, it’s helpful to gently squeeze the seeds and some of the juice from larger, vine-ripened tomatoes.  Optionally, place the diced tomatoes in a colander and allow them to drain while you prepare the other ingredients.
