Endive with Avocado Homemade Salsa Recipe

This cold appetizer has a great flavor. The ingredients are quite simple and you just need a homemade salsa and some endive to make it. One of the most special things about this appetizer though is its beautiful garnish. You can be creative with garnishes and use your own ideas to make something really spectacular. Examples of a nice garnish include half a kiwi fruit with some flowers in it or a baby pineapple. When you are preparing food, remember that you want it to look good as well as taste good. Your centerpiece can be edible or just for decoration (make sure your guests know which!) A centerpiece garnish which is a different color from the food looks the best.

The salsa is made with cucumber, avocado and tomato, as well as onions and fresh herbs. The dressing is a simple combination of oil, vinegar, and garlic. Do not underestimate the amazing flavor of this salsa because it really is good. It will have an obviously homemade taste as well, which is always a good thing. Homemade salsa recipes always taste so much fresher than the bland, slightly stale ones you can get in the store.

If you are having a dinner party or making food for a buffet, this would be a great recipe to go for. You can make the salsa up to a few hours in advance and keep it in a covered container in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve this wonderful snack. Feel free to double or triple the recipe. It will not take any longer to make.
