Ingredients
  • 2 Avocados, diced
  • 2 Fresh Summer tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh diced cucumbers
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • Drizzle of good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
Directions

Toss together the avocado, tomato, cucumber and basil.  Drizzle with fresh lemon and olive oil.  Season to taste with salt and pepper, adding a pinch of red pepper flakes if desired. 

Options:  Instead of fresh chopped basil, substitute with fresh oregano and Italian parsley, or add in a little fresh mint.  Fresh chopped cilantro is also a fabulous compliment to this salsa.  
Serve over grilled chicken or fish.  Or serve as an appetizer with a basket of blue corn chips.
