Avocado Salsa

Avocado Salsa

This past weekend our 25 year old “baby” made a bowl of a heavenly Avocado Salsa that was awesome. I said, “See, this is the benefit of allowing the children in the kitchen… they grow up to be great cooks!” This reminded me of a post first published on my blog One Generation to Another, back on October 30, 2007. I shared it again here on Wee Folk Art the summer of 2010. For all of you that might have missed it, you can read it HERE. And here is Mike’s recipe for delicious Avocado Salsa. Three cheers for Kids in the Kitchen!!!

Serves 8-10
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed well)
1 can fiesta corn (corn and peppers) (drained)
2 or 3 tomatoes, chopped (Romas work too, just make it 4 or 5 to make up for the size difference)
1/4 c. chopped sweet onion
3 green onions, chopped
2 avocados, diced
A pinch of rainbow and sunshine (my son had this as an ingredient 🙂
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. Balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 package Good Season Italian dressing (dry seasoning mix)
Mix all the ingredients together, cover and refrigerate for 2 – 3 hours before serving.

  1. If you can believe this I didn’t eat an avocado until I was 30! Now I’m all about the avocado. Can’t wait to give this a try. BTW just discovered your blog off a Pinterest link. Guess I come late to most things. I am devouring your blog. Love it.

    1. Welcome Janis. We are so glad you found us. Every once in a while I like to go back through our archives. There are crafts and recipes I've totally forgotten myself!

  2. Wow, this looks great! I wonder if I could get my son to eat avocado this way…my 3yo and I eat them plain, with a spoon. We’ll be trying this one soon. 🙂

    1. I love avocado just about any way I can think of. I've taken to using mashed avocado on sandwiches instead of any other spread. This makes a really big bowl. If you want try it, I would half the recipe. But it is so good! I ate it with a spoon the next day for lunch… even without chips it was awesome 🙂
