Winter Fruit Salsa by hardlikearmour

WHO: hardlikearmour is an outdoorsy baker based in the Pacific Northwest.
WHAT: A salsa so good you'll want to eat it with a spoon.
HOW: Just dice, toss, and here's the important part -- give it some time for the flavors to mingle and make friends.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The union of sage, cinnamon, and chile will try and throw you for a loop, but don't let it. Give in. You'll be glad you did.

Awesome! Reminds me of this mango-pomegranate salsa (http://www.paperplatesblog...).

Do you have any tips on how to figure out if an avocado is ripe? I always get confused when buying...
