• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
• One 2.25-ounce can of sliced
• Black olives
• Salt to taste
• 1/2 to 1 teaspoon minced jalapeño, preferably roasted

1. In a small bowl, toss the avocado with the lime juice. Chop the tomatoes and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add the tomatoes, cilantro and olives to the avocado mixture; stir well and let stand for 20 minutes. Add the jalapeño; stir and salt to taste.
