Avocado Salsa Verde
Okay so how much do I say I love salsa verde? Now how much do I say I love avocados? If you know me personally or know me through Mexican Appetizers and More, then you already know how much I love both. Salsa verde and avocados are lots of yums for me! Now infusing these two foods together to create a mouth jarring salsa is on a whole other level of deliciousness. So here’s to the amazing super versatile AVOCADO SALSA VERDE!
Mexican Avocado Salsa
I have a thing with salsas and dips and their uses. A salsa or dip is extra inviting when it’s multifunctional. And a Mexican avocado salsa hence avocado salsa verde does just that! You can have it with pretty much whatever you like!!
That being said, in my book you need to be able to have plenty of salsas in your inventory of salsas to combine with different dishes and appetizers.
I don’t know but that’s just me, I get really bored quickly with “same old, same old.” I need a little more excitement in my meals. I hope that’s not so bad for me to say, 😉 I just don’t see the harm in having a different salsa with my meals especially when they are so affordable to make and super simple!
But the thing is a salsa cannot just be affordable and simple. It has to taste really good. In my case, really really good for me to make it again and again….
Avocado salsa verde definitely makes the cut for delicious astonishing simplistic salsas…😋
