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

  1. Remove outer layer of avocado and pits; roughly dice avocado and place in mixing bowl.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
