Guacamole Cream & Olive Salsa
October 09, 2016
"Found @ realsimpledotcom, this is actually part of the recipe & what drew me to it. The rest of the recipe was for grilled shrimp tacos, but the no-cook salsa got more of my attention. The salsa was modified slightly to better suit our taste preferences, but I trust you will agree w/me that this salsa should have a wide variety of uses in recipes or when used as a condiment for eggs, tacos, burritos, salads, etc. Prep time was estimated & ample time allowed for ingredient prep. ENJOY!"
