Grilled Avocado with Salsa Fresca, wood pellet grill recipeGrilled Avocado with Salsa Fresca

We always enjoy cooking at the Murrieta Farmer’s Market. The people are great and we always come home with lots of fresh fruit and veggies.

Mike and Linda of Engle Farms sent home boxes of beautiful tomatoes, tomatillos and fragrant fresh basil, plus a huge assortment of fresh peppers. Thanks, friends. We got super hot Carnival and some sweet peppers, too. Just for fun we got four different varieties of tomatoes: Early Girl, Lemon Boys, Better Boy and German Giants.

Our Salsa Fresca, sweet from the sweet peppers and Tomatillos with just a hint of jalapeno heat, nice. Now, put it into a grilled avocado. Warm, soft and creamy. Now that is absolutely good stuff!

A Date Night Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 – 5 minutes
Grill: Any
Pellets: Pacific Pellet Pecan-Peach

Note: I use wood pellets in a “Wedgie” for added smoke to our Acorn Kamado grill.

A note on the ingredients used here. There is no right or wrong way to do this. It’s all based on what you have to work with and your taste. I have just discovered Calivirgin, Hot Virgin Jalapeno Olive Oil. It adds a nice layer of flavor to your dishes with just a touch of heat. I have used it where I normally use olive oil and been very happy with it on steaks and our grill fries.

Ingredients: Grilled Avocado with Salsa Fresca

  • 4 or 5 medium tomatoes, I used red, yellow and orange
  • 5 or 6 medium size Tomatillos, chopped
  • 5 or 6 green onions, chopped
  • Large sweet onion, diced
  • 2 or 3 mixed sweet peppers, chopped
  • 1 red jalapeno, chopped
  • 1 green jalapeno, chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. Calivirgin, Hot Virgin Jalapeno Olive Oil (adds a touch of heat)

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger wood pellet grills, Char-Griller, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
