Avocado Salsa

I was planning a party and thought it might be fun to try a different kind of avocado salsa. This recipe was an absolute success. Scoop it up with chips, spoon it over chicken or steak, or eat it on its own! —Susan Vandermeer, Ogden, Utah

    I love this salsa. It is quick and easy to make, light and refreshing. It was a hit even with my boys.

    Absolutely delicious! I use a red onion when making this recipe. I make this often and I'm always asked for the recipe! It's as eye appealing as it is delicious. Thanks for sharing!

    This was an excellent recipe! Easy to make and tastes great! I left out the olives because I'm not a fan. I was thinking about adding black beans next time.

    I simply love this recipe. Every time I have the desire for something fresh and healthy for dinner, I prepare this salsa for dinner together with a nice piece of meat. It's a big hit with friends as a snack with tortilla chips. There is no need to change it because it's perfect as it is but sometimes I don't have everything at home or something is left so I change a little bit and that's great, too. But the avocado, garlic and oregano are musts!

    This has been a go to recipe for me for years and anyone who likes avocados loves it. Why do so many people think that they have to change the recipe to rate it. It is delicious just as is. When you change it you are not really rating that recipe.
