Anne Clayton's Tomato and Avocado Salsa


This is another recipe that I saw on Anne Clayton's blog, cookhoneycook.blogspot.com.  It is an awesome way to  use the tomatoes, peppers and cilantro that I have growing in my garden and there is nothing more refreshing in the summer time than fresh, homemade salsa! 

FRESH TOMATO AVOCADO SALSA
2 lb. ripe tomatoes, hand chopped
use whatever looks good, mix up colors too
1/2 large sweet onion, chopped
3 large garlic cloves, minced
3 minced jalapenos, seeded
2 large green poblano peppers, seeded and minced
do not substitute green bell peppers...wear gloves!
1 large bunch cilantro, well rinsed and chopped fine
juice of 3 large limes
4 large ripe but still firm avocados, cubed
Fresh cilantro from my herb garden

Toss chopped tomatoes with 1 tablespoon coarse salt.  Set drain in colander while you prepare the other ingredients.  Transfer tomatoes to a bowl and toss with all other ingredients except avocado.  This is best if the tomato mixture is allowed to sit and mellow at room temperature for 30min to 1 hour..can be made ahead up to this point..refrigerate ..will keep 1 day.  Just before serving add avocados and toss gently.  Taste and correct seasoning
served 6-8
Pin It!
