FRESH is best!

With the start of summer in Minnesota...comes the fresh foods we love. Although, at the beginning of the season, there aren't many local fresh options, but that doesn't mean we can't still cook fresh! Since one of mine and my husbands favorite foods to make (and all variations of it) is tacos. We love beef tacos, chicken tacos, fish tacos, ground turkey name it, we've had it as tacos. And one of our favorite ways to have our tacos is with fresh chunky salsa. Because it's something I absolutely love, I decided to share it with all of you so you can enjoy the fresh yumminess!!

All the ingredients used were bought at my local Cub Foods grocery store. If you live in a warmer climate area, some of these ingredients may be available locally, if so, definitely go for the local or organic when you're able to - they just taste that much better!

Gather all your ingredients, and get ready to chop!

Start with your tomatoes and chop them roughly (no need to worry about size)

Next you'll move on to your red onion. We use about half of a medium size red onion and chop it into smaller pieces.

Add the chopped onion to the bowl of tomatoes.

Next, the avacado's. Everyone seems to have a way to de-pit, peel and cut up avacado, but we usually cut it in half and then use a knife to twist the seed/pit right out.

After getting the pit out, we usually peel the outside off which allows us easily dice the avacado.


Next we chop up the fresh cilantro. We like a bit more cilantro, but you can add more or use less depending on your preferences.

Next squeeze the juice from one lime and add to the rest of the ingredients.

Finally, add just a bit of salt and pepper to taste.
We prefer and use fresh cracked sea salt and peppercorns.

Now, mix and ENJOY!
