Colorful Summer Salsa


Sometimes I make salsa based on a craving for a spicy kick.  Sometimes I just want to go fresh and light.  Sometimes I want sweet and fruity.  Sometimes roasted and caramelized.

And sometimes….I just want some fresh color!!!  :)

Yes, I admit my method for making this one was literally — to see how many colors I can fit into one recipe!  With so much beautiful, ripe, colorful produce to choose from this time of year, it definitely was not hard.  And thankfully — since all of these ingredients go perfectly in salsa anyway, it turned out to be incredibly delicious!  Definitely a yummy take on the lighter, fresher, chunkier side of salsa-making.

Cheers to eating colorfully!

Ali’s Tip:

If you’re making this more than an hour in advance, just be sure to wait until just before serving to add the avocado so that it doesn’t go brown.
