We love guacamole but … it leads to a large amount of fried tortilla chip consumption which more than cancels out its goodness.
I have a very pleasant little sidewalk Mexican restaurant to thank for this happy discovery.
Guacamole tastes GREAT on cucumbers. Especially if you can get real ones from a farmers market or elsewhere in season.
It also tastes great on meaty tomato wedges or slices.
And there you have it. A perfect treat.
Here’s the guacamole recipe we use at home. It’s better than almost everything you’re going to come across elsewhere. Leave the ingredients a little chunky for a special taste treat,
All you really need for guacamole is ripe avocados and salt. After that, the next most important ingredient is lime juice (or lemon if you don’t have lime). Then come the cilantro, chiles, onion, and tomato.
