I got this recipe from my sister and have made it many times. It didn't come with a name so we named it ourselves and called it Tomatoless Salsa Dip. My sister doesn't like tomatoes (how weird is that), but they are one of my favorites and I had a box of cherry tomatoes in my fridge I was looking to use up, so I added it to this recipe tonight. But then that ruined the whole Tomatoless thing, so I've renamed again as Avocado Salsa Dip. If you aren't a tomato lover either, please feel free to leave them out and join the weird Don't Like Tomatoes Club.
I made Taco Salad for dinner tonight and we dumped the Avocado Salsa Dip on top of the salad and it made for a really nice addition to the salad. ~Denise
