FAQs

How to prevent avocado salsa from turning brown

The secret to preventing avocado salsa from going brown is the acid from the lemon juice. You can get similar results with lime juice, so if you notice it turning brown, you can try to mix in more of either of these juices.

Also, air oxidizes the avocado quickly. You’ll want to keep the salsa in an airtight container and only take out what you will use for the meal to help prevent the rest from browning.
