Easy Keto Avocado Salsa

Keto Avocado Salsa

There are a few ways you can improve a keto cheese shell taco or taco cup, and this low carb avocado salsa is definitely near the top of list! In addition to being a great way to add flavor, the inclusion of avocados (and avocado oil) makes this keto salsa recipe a good source of healthy fats too. Best of all, it’s also super quick and easy to make!

Just dice up your veggies, toss them with lime juice and avocado oil, and you’re good to go! In addition to adding it to your keto tacos, you can use it as a dip for your favorite pork rinds or low carb crackers/chips, or a topping/side for steak or fish. I’ll be honest…sometimes I just eat it by itself too. It’s hard to go wrong with anything avocado based as a snack.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium avocados, pitted and diced
  • 200 grams roma or grape tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup (about 28g) red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup (about 28g) bell pepper, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons (about 14g) jalapeno pepper, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper (optional)
  • juice of 1 medium lime (1-2 tablespoons)

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine avocado oil, garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.

  3. Pour oil/lime juice mixture over veggie mixture and toss to coat.
  4. Best served chilled or room temperature. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Notes:

  • You want avocados that are ripe but still somewhat firm so you can dice it without making a mushy mess. You’re going for salsa, not guacamole.
  • I usually use Primal Kitchens Avocado Oil for this, but any quality brand should work. You can also substitute olive oil if needed.
  • If you want extra spice, don’t seed the jalapeno and/or use a bit extra. You can also add a pinch of cumin and/or chili powder.
  • The oil and lime juice will keep the avocado from browning for a while as long as you use an airtight container for storage.
