This weekend, my husband and I went to a food festival. We drove a ways to get there and when we arrived we realized that it was much smaller of an event than what was advertised. We stuck around for about an hour and decided to hit some roadside stands we spotted on the way down. Fresh cherries, strawberries, peaches, avocados, artichokes, etc… The roadside stands were awesome. Placing our wares in the back of our car, we decided to take the long road home, driving up the coast to see all of the pretty vistas. A perfectly warm weekend. We got home and put some of avocados to use with this fresh tasting guacamole. Enjoy!
1 medium avocado
1/4 cup onion
1/2 jalapeno or 2 Tbsp bell pepper, chopped, ribs and seeds removed
2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
juice of lime
salt and pepper to taste
Cut avocado in half and remove pit. Scoop pulp out into a bowl. Using a fork, mash avocado until smooth in consistency. Add the juice of half a lime first to keep the avocado from turning brown. Add onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and garlic. Add salt and pepper gradually, until the dip tastes well balanced.
