I’m ready for a tan and a margarita. And bathing suits and boats. Okay, so maybe I’m dreaming of warmer weather, or maybe I just love summer. But with all these snow and ice forecasts on the radar, I can’t help but be pretty pissed at that groundhog. Ugh…
I’m ready for warm weather foods like guacamole. Luckily, I can get avocados year round, so I did.
Guacamole is the best and healthiest little snack that takes around 5 minutes to make. I don’t like fancy guacamole. Well, that’s not true. I like any guacamole I can get. But when I make it, I keep it simple. So here’s my recipe for the best and most simple guacamole. Ingredients:
- 2 ripe avocados
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- 1tbsp cilantro
- 1/4 small onion diced
- 1/4 c. green onion
- salt and pepper to taste
Directions: Mix all that together with a fork to break up the avocado. Garnish with sea salt and cilantro.
And that’s it! It is super simple. It is pretty tasty and it is healthy. I don’t need tomatoes or garlic. I love the flavor of avocado enough that I never think guac needs much more. Avocados are great for you, and with a handful of chips or even carrots, it’s a super easy snack. So, since it’s still chilly outside and I can’t wear shorts and flip flops yet, I’ll just make guacamole to make it feel like summer. Ahhhh…..
