Strawberry Avocado Salsa

This recipe is from a blog I frequent regularly.  Kevin Lynch's Closet Cooking has wonderful recipes. When I found this on pinterest I wasn't surprised it came from Kevin's blog.
I adapted the recipe slightly.

This recipe by the way was excellent! Great combo and will make again.

1 1/4 cups washed strawberries, cut into small pieces

1/2 cup avocado, cut into small pieces

1 jalapeno, finely diced( I used jalapeno flakes and chili garlic sauce to taste)

1/4 cup red onion, finely diced

1 lime, juice and zest( I used 1 tablespoon key lime juice)
1 handful cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste( Didn't use- sprinkled with cajun seasoning)
Combine everything in a medium size bowl and refrigerate until cool.

Garnish with chopped cilantro and add seasoning to taste.


  1. Yes please-and THANK YOU! That looks so good. I love combinations like this. What a great side kick for chicken or pork. When the strawberries and avocado look good at the store, I know what I'll be making!

    By the way-I just love that bowl-it's so pretty.

    Thanks Linda-and thanks to Kevin too-I agree with you Linda, he has a fantastic blog. :)


  2. Thank you Diana for peeking in! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  3. This sounds great I may have to make it tonight! I discovered a really good coleslaw the other day at a BBQ cook off. They shared their ingredients which were shredded cabbage, yellow pepper sliced very thinly, cilantro,and the dressing was a thin wonderful raspberry vinaigrette. I found the perfect one made by Kraft called Raspberry Poppyseed Anthing dressing. I am also trying to create my own version. I have two quarts of raspberries and white wine marinating in the pantry.

  4. I'm pinning it, but I know I'll have to make it when my husband is not around. He will mightily protest ruining strawnberries by combining them with avacado!

    1. Thanks for the pin Sarah! My hubby won't touch avocado either.
