Time to work on the parsley. Give it a good wash, dry it off, and finely chop it up.

TIPS: If you don’t have fresh parsley on hand, don’t worry! You can easily substitute it with dried parsley. While fresh parsley adds a vibrant touch, dried parsley still brings a pleasant herbaceous flavor to your dish. So, feel free to use whichever option suits your pantry.

Alright, avocado lovers, this one’s for you. Cut that ripe avocado in half, get rid of the pit, peel off the skin, and cut it into big, delicious cubes.

TIPS: Ever wondered how to tell if an avocado is perfectly ripe? Simply give it a gentle press near the stalk. If the fruit is slightly dented, it’s good to go. However, if it feels too soft, it might be overripe.
