Florida Tomato and Avocado Salsa
This salsa is flavorful, yet mild enough for the whole family. Best of all, it tastes great and you need only a couple minutes to whip it together. Serve at room temperature for best flavor!
Yields: 4 to 6 Servings
2 Large Florida tomatoes, diced
1 large avocado, peeled, seeded and diced
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon powdered cumin
Your favorite hot sauce (for heat)
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt, pepper and hot sauce.
Notes: For hotter version, substitute 1 seeded fresh jalapeno pepper for the green pepper. Also, if you prefer, use toasted cumin seed instead of ground cumin.
