So, this avocado and scallion salsa is anything, but ordinary! It has the perfect combination of flavors and leaves you wanting more! I a gobbled it up in 5 minutes. My son, Luke, recently started becoming an avocado fan and he loved it!
This would be perfect to serve on top of some flatbread as an appetizer or even on top of a piece of white fish to flavor it up. It takes 5 minutes to make, as well! So, as long as you have 10 minutes to spare, you've got yourself a nice healthy meal! This salsa would even be perfect for an afternoon snack 🙂
Ingredients to make this salsa
To make this delicious salsa you will need 4 medium avocados, pits removed and chopped into bite sized pieces. 2 tbsp avocado oil, 2 tsp kosher salt, 2 tsp ground black pepper, 2 tsp ground coriander, 2 tsp ground cumin, 8 scallions, chopped into bite sized pieces, 1 tsp parsley, and the juice from one lemon. I also served mine on top of these mini naan breads I found at my local supermarket, but if your market does not sell them, then click here!
How to make avocado and scallion salsa
Well if this wasn't the easiest recipe to make then I don't know what is?! In a small mixing bowl, toss in all ingredients and mix until well combined! Serve over flatbread or on a piece of white fish. I would even like to try this with some crispy whole wheat tortillas or on top of a nice piece of grilled chicken! If you try this recipe please share how you ate your salsa 🙂
Why eat avocados
Okay, so I'm sure you've heard how great avocados are for your diet and that you should be adding them in. If you've tried an avocado, but it just isn't for you, then I suggest giving this recipe a try. It really gives the avocado all the right flavors and will most likely leave you a fan! Avocado is a great source of potassium and fiber and is considered a healthy fat. ½ cup of avocado has 120 calories and 364 milligrams of potassium and 5 grams of fiber.
