Summer’s Favorite Dip – Guacamole

I tend to make this recipe once a week in the summer. It’s so fresh, so easy to make, and is a great appetizer at every summer potluck.

Summer Guacamole

(Makes 2 cups)

2 avocados
1/4 c chopped cilantro
1/4 c chopped red onion
1 lime, juiced
1 clove garlic
For a kick, add in some chopped jalapeno
Salt and pepper to taste

Slice avocados into two halves. Remove seed. Cut into lines, like tic-tac-toe!

Then, scoop out the goodness.

Place in your bowl.

Chop up cilantro,

onion,

and garlic.

For the garlic, I like to place a peeled clove on top of sea salt, and then put my knife on top and hit it for the smush.

Then, make it into a paste by rubbing the knife against the salty garlic a few times.

Put all ingredients in the bowl and squeeze a fresh lime over the ingredients, making sure to cover the avocados. No one likes brown guacamole.

Mash it up good. Add salt and pepper to taste.

And serve.
