Tomato, Avocado And Lemon Salad

    I came across a jar of preserved lemons at TJ's a couple weeks ago and felt a strong urge to buy it lol, and at $2.50, thought it was a good deal. Have found a couple recipes on this site, but decided on this one today. Made my own tortilla chips to go with this, I feel like it's more of a salsa than a salad. If you haven't had preserved lemons, try them! Salty, yet slightly sour and sweet. They just have a fresh, bright and unique flavor that is hard to explain. Loved this by the way, delicious little recipe :) :)

    That is so pretty! I have never heard of preserved lemons before! I wonder if they are hard to find around here.

    That's very cool Michelle and indeed it makes a perfect salsa. I have heard of preserved lemons and have been intrigued but wouldn't have known what to do with them. $2.50/jar sounds like a very good deal.

    Looks Fabulous Michelle!
    I've never tried preserved lemons before, I've candied them and dried lemon zest, but never had them preserved. I must try soon!

    Thank you!! I need to use up my jar of preserved lemons, so I will probably be posting more recipe reviews here using them :)

    Mommyluvs2cook, I typed 'preserved lemons' into the site search engine and didn't see a lot of recipes, but found this online and hope it helps you find something to use them up: http://mjskitchen.com/2014/02/recipes-using-preserved-lemons/

    Darn! Every time I check to make sure the link works, it says 'page not found'! The hit I found online said 30+ recipes with preserved lemons - MJs Kitchen. When I click on the link, the recipes come up with the above address, but doesn't seem to work now. When I type in 30+ recipes - MJs Kitchen, it does! Weird. ANYway, maybe you can find something there :)

    And just now the link *did* work! Oy!

    Yaay! :) Maybe it's because I'm not a member of Pinterest and don't know how to use it.

    I found preserved lemons on Amazon. They are pricey. Not $2.50! :-)
