Avocado Salad

Ripe and buttery avocados are one of K’s favorite foods. We usually make tons of guacamole as a snack. As delicious and healthy as the guacamole is, it unfortunately encourages copious consumption of large bags of salty and crunchy tortilla chips. Finishing a 1-pound+ over-sized bag of chips while watching a football game is not uncommon! So I made this version instead with all the same fresh ingredients as a bright side salad to discourage our scary chip binge. Creamy avocados, crunchy spicy onions and fragrant cilantro with fresh lime that brings it all together. Enjoy!
