Red, White and Blueberry SALSA!


Who has time to write a blog post on a day like this?!  Not me! That's why I'm making this short and sweet.  If you haven't figured out what to bring to your cookout today, I'll say "You're Welcome" in advance. This is simple and amazing (and trust me, it was approved by about 100 customers at the store yesterday).  Enjoy, and have a WONDERFUl Fourth of July!

Red, White and Blueberry Salsa
Serves: 4
Source: California Avocado Commission

1/2 sweet white onion, minced
2 ripe red tomatoes, diced
2 serrano chiles, stemmed, seeded, and minced
1 Tbsp. minced fresh cilantro (or mint)
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 tsp. sea salt

Combine, allow to sit for 30 minutes or overnight, then enjoy!

Serve with your favorite chips.
Crunch away.

And now I'm off to make a farro and wild rice salad.  I'll post this one soon (it's my next whole grain experiment. Can you believe I've never tried farro?!  Have you??)

All the "Fixins'" for my farro and wild rice salad

    1. Hey Megan!
      I know, my Instagram photos are always posted about 2-3 weeks before I post on the blog :) I want to get everyone excited for what's to come!! haha, sounds like it's working. The farro salad was fabulous. It was a big hit, even among the non-health nuts!

  3. Thanks a lot for creating this recipe by combining all my favourite.
