Strawberry Salsa
  • 1 - fresh serrano or jalapeno chili
  • 1 cups - finely chopped strawberries
  • 1/4 cups - finely chopped white onion
  • 2 tablespoons - finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoons - fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoons - salt
  • Salad
  • 2 - firm ripe avocados
  • 6 - 5-inch corn tortillas
  • - vegetable oil, for frying
  • Directions:

    1. To make salsa, wearing rubber gloves, remove stems, seeds and ribs from chili and chop fine. In a bowl stir together chili and remaining salsa ingredients. Salsa may be made several hours ahead and chilled, covered.

    2. Stack tortillas and cut them in half. Cut stacks crosswise into 1/4-inch thick strips and in a heavy skillet heat 1/2-inch oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Working in three batches, fry tortilla strips until crisp and golden, about 30 seconds, and with a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle fried tortilla strips with salt to taste.

    3. Halve avocados, removing pits and peel. Slice each half lengthwise into 6 wedges and fan out onto 4 salad plates.

    4. Spoon about 1/3 cup strawberry salsa over each avocado fan and mound crispy tortilla strips alongside.
