Avocado Salad Recipe

 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.
