Healthy Eating – Spice Up Your Life with . . . Avocado Salsa!

Here is a delicious treat to spice up special celebrations in a healthy eating sort of way. I have been asked to share this recipe so many times that I thought I should share it with you. I discovered it a few years ago and it has become a staple to take to pot lucks ever since. It’s fun knowing that you are taking a dish that will get a lot of attention! Our family loves this so much that we served it at our son’s wedding rehearsal dinner. I’d love to hear your feedback
