From: Diabetic Living Magazine

Store-bought salsas are convenient and come in many varieties. However, this avocado and pumpkin salsa—one you won't find on any grocery shelf—is worth making from scratch. Creamy avocados, fresh tomato, and canned pumpkin are jazzed up with cilantro, lime juice, and a touch of hot pepper sauce, resulting in a salsa that's seriously delicious. Serve with baked tortilla chips or over grilled chicken breasts.
