Chunks of avocado, tomato, red and green peppers, and plenty of cilantro give flavor to this refreshing and colorful salad, and jalapeno peppers give it a hint of heat. Dressing is just a simple squeeze of lime juice.

Tips

Cook's Note

I control heat of the jalapeno peppers by leaving in membranes and seeds (hotter) or removing the seeds and membranes (milder). I usually end up removing the seeds from 1 pepper and leaving the seeds in the other one.

Funny that this recipe is rated 5 stars but the only two reviewers haven't even tried it yet! I know I don't like cilantro but this recipe sounds so good that I thought perhaps this time I might so I gave it a try. I was wrong. The cilantro ruined it for me. However my friend who does like cilantro thought the salad was great. I don't like to rate a receipe that I didn't make as stated (I left out the red onion and Jalapenos only becasue I didn't have them on hand and scaled the recipe back to about half) but in this case it seemed appropriate. My friend really liked it and I think I would too if maybe I used a smaller bit of parsley instead of the large amount of cilantro the recipe calls for. The lime juice as a dressing is really nice but be careful with the salt. Read More

Great overall but I'd definitely recommend scaling back the cilantro (I wound up using way less than the recipe called for and added basil because I had a bunch on hand). I love the flavor overall. I added more pepper and some cayenne pepper to spice it up. This recipe makes a lot of salad. Read More

Absolutely loved this salad. The jalapeño is a nice touch but it might be a little too spicy for some. Read More
