Dean Fearing serves this chunky avocado condiment with turkey as an alternative to cranberry sauce. He likes the Southwestern richness it adds to turkey, particularly the lean breast meat; it's also terrific with the tortilla–corn bread dressing.    Chef Holiday Recipes Made Easy Plus: Ultimate Thanksgiving Guide  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium skillet, heat the oil. Add the onion, season with salt and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until richly browned, about 10 minutes; let cool.

Step 2    

In a large bowl, combine the sautéed onion with the lime juice, garlic, red pepper and jalapeño. Gently fold in the avocado and basil. Season with salt and serve.

Make Ahead

The avocado relish can be refrigerated overnight; press plastic wrap directly onto the relish.
