Avocado Salsa Verde

You need this avocado salsa verde in your life! It’s delicious with chips as a dip, or served alongside tacos, migas, fajitas, breakfast casseroles, nachos or any kind of eggs. And the best part is … it’s so simple to make!

With just four ingredients and five minutes, you can have this ready to serve. Start with a bottle of store-bought salsa verde — a basic mixture of tomatillos, onions, jalapeños, garlic and salt. Store-bought salsa verde can be very average on its own, but when you add my three secret ingredients (cilantro, avocado and lime juice) it becomes restaurant-worthy!

It’s perfect for a party or potluck — free of gluten, sugar and dairy — this salsa is such a winner! Let me know if you get a chance to try it!

1 jar (14 – 17 ounces) mild store-bought salsa verde

1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, some stems okay

  1. Pour the salsa verde into the jar of a blender or bowl of a food processor. Add the avocado, cilantro and lime juice. Blend until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and serve. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
