Avocado “Happy Hour” Salsa

This post contains affiliate links including Amazon affiliate links.

Summer is here!!!!  That means burgers, burgers, and more burgers!  I don’t eat my burger with a bun anymore but if you do check out my recipe for hamburger buns.  Instead I get creative with my burger toppings.

I do…

The Traditional:

Caramelized onions
Sautéed mushrooms

And now my version of Mexican ……

My avocado salsa burger topping is inspired by guacamole.  I’m crazy for avocado.  Every time I eat some I call it happy hour!  After doing more research on avocados I learned that the tryptophan in avocados turns into serotonin in our brains.  You can read more about the food mood connection in Maria Emmerich’s book (GREAT BOOK!).
