Eating is necessary for the survival of man (and woman), but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be enjoyable. Making sure that everyone has the opportunity to maximize their on the road enjoyment by offering a variety of different meal choices can be taxing for the one in charge of the menu. One handy trick that can decrease the stress of the meal planner and increase the probability that everyone in the recreational vehicle will find their palate satisfied during their time on the road is to incorporate simple, but popular appetizers.
RVers who are worried about keeping the masses “fed” during the next planned road trip or RV vacation will do well to consider the sheer likability of the following dish. It’s simple. It’s quick. It’s just different enough to be fun without being so different that only the courageous travelers will give it a try.
1 bunch green onions, chopped
6 Roma Tomatoes, chopped
1 Avocado, chopped
1 Jar Green Chile Salsa
1 can El Pato
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Oregano
¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder
Salt to Taste
Fresh Cilantro (to taste)
Directions: Chop all the ingredients and add to a large bowl. (The measurements of the spices can be increased for those who like their salsa with more kick. The current measurements will result in a fairly mild dip). Mix well, but carefully so fresh ingredients are “mashed.” Serve cold with tortilla chips.
RVers looking for something to snack on will find Avocado Salsa the perfect answer. It’s also a great addition to any meal and, of course, can always actually perform as it was originally intended…as an appetizer to a meal that isn’t quite ready yet. While traditional salsa and guacamole are always a good choice, some find that choosing recipes and meals that are just a little different than the day to day norm makes it more fun to be in the RV kitchen, and more interesting to eat home cooked meals on the road.
