  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 ripe avocados, peeled, cored and diced
  • 4 medium vine-ripened tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped


  • In a small bowl, cover onion with cool water to mellow it (remove the harsh bite out). Let sit for at least ten minutes, stirring once or twice, while preparing the rest of your ingredients.
  • Drain onion. Add to a mixing bowl with diced avocados, tomatoes, jalapeños and chopped cilantro.
  • Whisk dressing ingredients together in a smaller bowl until well combined.
  • Pour dressing over avocado salsa and gently toss to evenly combine.
  • Serve with tortilla chips.


For a kick of heat, add red pepper flakes, red chili powder or a pinch of cayenne!
