My favorite salad for summer cookouts is Salsa Salad. It really has not salsa in it but it reminds me of a big chunk pico de gallo with avocado in it!!!
Serve with any grilled meat or poultry - & perfect with Mexican food.
4 ripe plum tomatoes, chopped
1 small avocado, coursely diced
2 tablespoons minced sweet onion
1 bell pepper, seeded, coursely diced
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
2 teaspoons lime juice (or to taste)
Salt to taste (1 start with 1/4 teaspoon)
1/4 cup minced cilantro
Mix ingredients together and serve. (If salad is to be left out on a buffet, I use
a little Fruit Fresh on the avocado so it doesn't turn brown.)
Serve as is or over a bed of salad greens.
COOKS NOTE: The seasonings on this can easily be adjusted to taste. I have started out low, so feel free to add more to your own personal taste.
