Avocado Salsa

This salsa is bright, fresh, and has a definite kick to it. Be careful — Anaheim peppers can sting and irritate the skin, so wear rubber gloves when handling them and don’t touch your eyes.



  • 1 medium avacado, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup peeled seeded chopped cucumber
  • 1 Anaheim pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, plus additional for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


Combine avocado, onion, cucumber, Anaheim pepper, tomato, 2 tablespoons cilantro, salt and hot pepper sauce into a medium bowl and gently mix. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Garnish with additional cilantro.

Yield: 32 servings (about 4 cups).

Serving size: 2 tablespoons.
