This has to be my favorite summer salsa. It's colorful and fresh tasting. It makes a bunch, so invite some friends over. I like to take the lime after it's been juiced and rub down the bowl I will be serving the salsa in. I also rub the lime on the plastic wrap this will help keep the avocados from turning brown. Don't forget the tortilla chips!

I put this into a warmed flour tortilla with hot Mexican chicken breast pieces. Chipotle move over! I would always get their chicken burrito with black beans corn salsa and guacamole. This tasted just as awesome but was even better because it was fresher and cheaper. And super easy. Only change: no red wine vinegar. Read More

This salsa was so so. It did not have an overabundance of flavor. I was disappointed for the amount of work it took and will not make it again. Read More

This is very delicious. I use it on tostadas with shredded rotisserie chicken, in tortillas for burritos or as a dip. It is so bright, summery & flavorful. Lasts several days in the refrigerator & tastes better with time! Thanks Dawn! Read More

This was super easy to make and really delicious. I do not like cilantro so I eliminated it but otherwise stuck with the recipe exactly. Read More

Delish! Great salsa with chips for a party! I added a scoopful to my eggs the next morning with a little cheese - so yummy! The lime juice really saves the avocado from turning brown! Read More

This recipe is OK but if you add a tablespoon of sugar to it will make it fabulous. Kind of cuts the acidity a bit and gives it a finished flavor. Try it! Read More

Pure deliciousness! I made this exactly as the recipe calls for and I wouldn't change a thing about it. It is perfect for tortilla chips and it would be amazing on grilled fish or chicken. I'm going wrap up some scrambled eggs and this salsa in a tortilla tomorrow morning for my breakfast! Read More
