• 4 large avocados
  • 1 large or 2 small tomatoes
  • ½ cup salsa
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt to taste
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ to 1 cup chopped pineapple (optional but delish!)


  1. In a medium bowl mix the avocados, chopped tomato, salsa, mayonnaise, garlic salt, chopped onion, and pineapple. A little more or less of any ingredient will work, depending on your taste.
  2. If it is too thick, add more salsa or a touch more mayonnaise.
  3. If not thick enough, add another avocado or more onions and tomatoes.

Makes: Enough for a group of teenagers to polish off in no time!

About the Recipe: My 19-year-old daughter and her friends started requesting this recipe a lot during high school and it continued when she came home from college. I didn’t realize they all liked it so much and talked about it. The pineapple happened by mistake but everyone loved it so we kept it in! It’s the first thing my daughter asks me to make when she comes home from Indiana University.

We would never live anywhere else.
