Chunky Tomato Avocado Salsa

Tomato avocado salsa & our Saturday night salmon dinner

Whipped this tasty combination up to kick off another Whole 30 Challenge. Dave will be cheering me on from the sidelines on this one, but still eating as healthy as ever. Not everyone needs this kind of structure or challenge, but if you’ve ever had “issues” with your food, or want to reset your metabolism or clear out allergies, it’s great. I’ve been craving food that’s “FRESH” lately and looking forward to having the kind of health that reflects that – so with that in mind, bon apetit!

By the way, I put together this recipe after receiving a request from a friend, but in truth most measurements were after-the-fact guestimations, so feel free to tweak to your taste.
