Choose ripe avocados whose peel is turning from green to black. They should yield to gentle pressure when you press them. (Hard avocados will be useless here; super soft ones will be fine if the flesh hasn't turned brown. I'd go somewhere in between.) To cut open the avocado, slice lengthwise all the way around the pit and then separate the two halves. Either scoop out the pit with a spoon or remove it with a knife.


  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • 1 tablespoon minced jalapeño chile
  • 6 radishes, stems and tails removed, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided, plus more to taste
  • 2 large ripe avocados, pitted
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  • Put the tomatoes, jalapeño, radishes, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt in a serving bowl. Mix to combine.
  • Scoop the avocado from the peel directly into the bowl. Add the lime juice and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a fork, mash the avocado together with the other ingredients until it is as chunky or smooth as you like it. Stir in the cilantro. Taste and add additional salt, lime juice, or jalapeño if needed. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or warm corn tortillas.
