Chunky Salsa Salad

This Chunky Salsa is a very basic yet tasty side dish for any meal, especially with a barbecued piece of chicken or meat. It takes practically no time at all to prepare but will certainly excite your tastebuds.

It is equally as nice if you do not add the fresh avocado to the salsa but a word of advice though don't add the avocado until just prior to serving as they tend to turn brown if left standing for too long.

This was delicious served with our version of Nando's, Peri Peri Chicken. For a really tasty and fresh dip chop these ingredients smaller and serve with cornchips or vegetable sticks.
