Avocado Tomato Salsa

This recipe comes from Cooking Light magazine.  It is included with a chicken tostada recipe - which is basically just a tostada shell, rotisserie chicken, beans, lettuce,  queso fresco cheese, then topped with this salsa.  The tostadas were ok, but the salsa was AMAZING!  I loved the addition of avocados, and the lime juice makes it taste so fresh and light!  Yummy!!!  I think it would be good on all kinds of things - even just with tortilla chips as a dip.  With fresh tomatoes coming on - I will make this one a lot this summer.  Give it a try!
