Aunt Heather’s Tropical Avocado Salsa

No comments

Living with my Aunt Heather this past summer has been fabulous for many reasons.

One of them, is her family-famous avocado salsa.

Not quite guacamole — not quite a salsa — this fresh dip falls somewhere in-between and is sure to satisfy anytime of year.

  • 1 tablespoon peeled fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1/2 clove garlic, chopped (more if you love garlic!)
  • Celtic sea salt to taste
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Chips of your choice for dipping


  1. Chop up the ginger, jalapeno, and garlic.
  2. Then, using a large knife, mince the ingredients together until they create a sort of rough paste.
  3. Sprinkle the mixture with 1/4 teaspoon salt and continue to use the side of the knife until it is a paste.
  4. Transfer the paste to a medium bowl. Add the pineapple, cilantro, onion, tomatoes, and avocados.
  5. Taste! (The best part!) Add additional ingredients, if desired.
  6. Transfer the salsa to a serving bowl. Garnish with a few pieces of cilantro sprigs. Serve with chips.

Note: This salsa can be refrigerated for up to 2 days before turning brown.
