Here on YumSugar, we've gone a little avocado crazy, but with Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, how can you not be? A little while back, I stumbled across a strawberry-salsa-stuffed avocado recipe, and with the berries' fragrance overpowering my farmers market, I remembered that I had wanted to give it a shot.
Although I've never thought of using strawberries as a base for salsa, the resulting dish is outstanding! The sweet berries are complemented by the acidic lime juice, spicy jalapeno, and creamy avocado. The salsa-stuffed avocado makes a perfect alternative to a side salad, and the strawberry salsa alone would be tasty on pork, mild fish, or tortilla chips.
