This freshest and best avocado salad recipe, this recipe is courtesy of my grandmother. She has the best recipes, anybody that knows her can agree her dishes are one of a kind and simply amazing. Her avocado tree produced so many avocados most seasons and we ate tons of them. My very favorite way to eat avocados is in a simple chopped up Avocado salad, exactly the way we had them at mi abuelas. The key ingredient, almost ripe avocado chunks.
Now that I don’t have the luxury of my grandmothers backyard garden, I rely on Avocados from Mexico to imitate her recipe.
