Heart-Healthy Avocado Salsa
Avocado & Tomato Salsa
To kick off the week we are sharing our favourite "heart-healthy" avocado salsa with all of you. Let's face it, chips and salsa is one of the best quarantine snacks and with the addition of avocado...it adds extra heart-health benefits!
According to a study in Archives of Medical Research, Avocado is packed with monounsaturated fats which help reduce heart disease causing LDL cholesterol.
This salsa is so good I could eat it by the spoonful! Of course the first choice to eat with this dip would be chips, instead have it with healthy whole grain crackers and it will still taste amazing!
