Avocado Relish with Cherry Tomatoes


Avocado Relish with Cherry Tomatoes

This is one of my favorite condiments ever and it’s so easy.  The first time I had it was on top of an omelet at the Crowne Royal in downtown Tulsa.  It was so good that I had to make it when I got home.

Ever since then, I make it up every so often to top homemade omelets, tacos, roasted pork, beef, or really anything that needs a little extra sweetness and saltiness.

One note: even though this is an avocado relish, the key to really making it tick is to use good cherry tomatoes.  The acid, natural sugars, and bold earthiness of the cherry tomatoes take this from a nice avocado condiment to a fantastic relish.

Now, without further ado.

Avocado Relish Recipe

While I said that cherry tomatoes were the key to this recipe, this relish has one more ingredient.  A secret ingredient: rice wine vinegar.  Allez cuisine!

You will need:

  • 2 avocados, halved, seeded and removed from their peel
  • 20 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 rine wine vinegar

Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mash with a fork.  Test for saltiness and for sweetness.  Add more salt or vinegar as needed.
