Appetizer: Loaded Guacamole
Loaded with good fats, this is one dish that’s both delicious and healthy.
(Prep 10 mins, Cook N/A, Serves 4)
4 ripe Hass avocados
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tomato, seeded and finely diced
¼ red onion, finely diced
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1 lime, juiced
- Remove outer layer of avocado and pits; roughly dice avocado and place in mixing bowl.
- On a cutting board, combine salt and garlic – use the side of a chef’s knife to smash the garlic into a paste, using the salt as an abrasive; add to mixing bowl.
- Combine remaining ingredients and mash with a fork to combine; do not overly mash, as you want the texture to remain chunky. Serve.
Note – if preparing in advance, cover the top with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent any air from reaching the mixture, otherwise it will turn brown.
