Avocado Salsa (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

I love a good veggie-rich salsa dip to serve with whole grain crackers, corn or bean chips, and veggies. And this avocado salsa is packed with extra goodies: corn, green onions, cilantro, black olives, corn, and jalapenos. It’s not only delicious, but it’s beautiful to boot. 

Set out a bowl at a party and watch it disappear! It’s not only pretty, but this dip is packed with nutrients, such as fiber, vitamins, minerals, heathy fats, and phytochemicals—plant compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions. So, you can feel good about serving it at any time.

While this avocado salsa is great at snack time or as an appetizer, it’s also delicious served as an accompaniment to veggie-burgers, lentil patties, veggie “meat” balls, tacos, burritos, and sandwiches. Bring it to your next party or picnic as a delicious dish that will be the hit! With only 10 ingredients, not including pantry staples, it’s a go-to recipe you will turn to again and again.
