Tag Archives: guacamole

A while back I posted my favorite guacamole recipe, which calls for little more than the avocados themselves. This is typically my go-to approach for this simple starter, but here I deviated a bit. The avocados I bought were, for some reason, on the bland side, so I added a few more ingredients to the mix.

2 Hass avocados, medium dice
juice of 1/2 lemon
juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 tomato, small dice (I only had cherry tomatoes so feel free to use whatever  you have on hand)
1/4 small red onion, minced (or 1 shallot, minced)
kosher salt, to taste

1. Place the avocados into a medium bowl and, using 2 knives, cut the pieces so that the avocados break down. Be sure to leave some chunks (unless you prefer it smooth).
2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the avocado and stir.
3. Adjust seasoning as needed.

Avocado is my favorite fruit (you heard me) and guacamole is The Ultimate Dip. It’s ridiculously easy to prepare and can be tailored in many ways to make a unique dip that suites your taste. For me, minimalism reigns.

Mash up Hass avocados with fresh chopped cilantro, fresh lime juice and salt. That’s it.

Smear the guacamole on top of the crostini and top with shrimp (these were tossed with oil, S & P, roasted for 5 minutes in a 400-degree Fahrenheit oven, and then sliced in half horizontally).
