RECIPE: Strawberry Avocado Salsa


This recipe was originally created during season one of my Trader Joe’s cooking show, SWASHBUCKLED! It was undoubtedly the favorite of the entire season, and has been made multiple times over. We swap out tomatoes for sweet strawberries, and the unexpected flavor combination is really light, summery, and is hard to stop! It is beautiful too, and makes a great statement for any potluck or gathering.
