Share This Article:

Serve this zesty dish as a light starter, or have as a lively lunch… we think it just screams summer.

Serves: 4 as a starter, or 2 as a light lunch

Preparation time: 10 minutes

You’ll need:

2 ripe avocados, cut in half lengthways, skin on, stone removed

180g lime zest beetroot, diced

6 cherry tomatoes, diced

1 shallot, very finely chopped

1 small bunch of coriander, finely chopped

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

A few drops of chili sauce (e.g. Tabasco), optional, to taste

4 tsp sour cream

Salt & freshly ground black pepper

A couple of handfuls tortilla chips, to serve

What to do:

1. Make the salsa by mixing together the beetroot, tomato, shallot and coriander. Add the olive oil, and season to taste with chili sauce, salt and pepper.

2. Arrange the avocados on serving plates and spoon a little of the salsa into the middle of each, and add a spoon of sour cream on top.

3. Add any spare salsa to a small dish and hand around separately. Serve with tortilla chips and eat immediately.
