High in monounsaturated fats, avocados are a great heart, liver, and brain- healthy food. I always get asked for the recipe when I serve this!

Combine onion, tomato, cilantro, jalapeno and seasalt in a small bowl. In a large bowl, coarsely mash the avocado with a fork or potato masher. Add the onion mixture and lime juice and stir until well mixed.
