Summer is a great time to add spicy, different salsas as a side dish. There's an abundance of fresh vegetables to use in totally different ways and this salsa is one of my favorites. This recipe is low calorie and refreshing, and the avocado is full of good fats. Serve it beside grilled chicken or even to top a salad and shrink your waistline while still eating delicious food.
