Avocado Relish with Caramelized Onions
- TOTAL TIME: 35 MIN
- SERVINGS: 12
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.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 medium onion, cut into 3/4-inch dice
- Juice of 2 limes
