I am a firm believer that everything during the Christmas season needs to be red or green. So if I have a chance to make delicious party food during the holidays it will be something red or green to go with the traditional holiday colors... in fact, even decorating for the holiday at my home is a red and green festivity. So last week when Adam and I decided to pull out our decorations I also pulled out my Christmas sweater and whipped up some green salsa too.




I am all about decorating and I was so excited to finally have home that will fit in our tree and all our nativities. So the day we get back from Thanksgiving I was pumped to put up all the Christmas decor. Adam on the other hand? Not so thrilled. So I told him once the decorating was done we would have a salsa snack. Because all work deserves a little break with a snack, right? On our way back into town from Thanksgiving we made a quick stop at Winco for some groceries and I made sure to pick up all the ingredients including some Tabasco Green Jalapeño sauce to really put a kick in my Avocado Cilantro salsa.






And then on Sunday I made Adam a deal. He could open all the boxes, I would do the decorating, and then we could snack after. I felt like it was pretty fair right? I wouldn't have to open up everything and he could just watch TV while pulling things out of boxes. And I got to just focus on the decorating.











It is a good thing I made the salsa early because there was a lot more motivation to get the decorating done fast. We had everything out, opened, up, and then the boxes back in storage in about an hour. And of course, once it was all done we got to kick back, relax, and enjoy some delicious Avocado Cilantro Salsa by the Christmas lights. All wins if you ask me!
