La Salsa Inglesa: An Alternative Avocado Salsa

Avocado salsa

An alternative avocado salsa

For me, avocados are synonymous with Guatemalan food. While guacamole is the most common way to serve up these savoury fruits, why not mix it up for your next Sunday Churrasco? This alternative avocado salsa has a sharp tangy flavour that makes it stand out from the rest. It keeps better than guacamole, and the parsley is packed with vitamina C.


2 Hass avocados

1 small white onion, roughly chopped

1 small green bell pepper, deseeded and chopped

½ green jalapeno pepper, deseeded and chopped (optional)

½ cup cilantro leaves

¼ cup parsley leaves

1/8 cup white vinegar

Juice of 1 lime1 garlic clove, peeled

1/3 cup olive oil


Add all the vegetables and herbs to a blender. Gradually add the oil, lime juice and vinegar and blend until you have a smooth salsa. Season to taste and keep chilled until serving. Serve as a side with nachos, as a topping for burritos, tacos or similar tortilla-based dishes. Bon appetit, Xela!
