My Guacamole ! ©

This is a real quickie! You all know it, Mexican and delicious, it goes perfectly with “Irene’s Favorite Wraps”!

Makes an excellent starter on a lettuce leaf and is a delicious salad. It also makes an excellent accompaniment to spicy meat burgers.

 

 

 

Easy

 

 

 

 

For 4-6 persons

 

 

 

Ingredients

1 small onion finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic (optional)

1 summer tomato

1/4 peeled cubed cucumber ( optional )

1 ripe avocado

15 ml/1 tablespoon lemon/ Lime juice

1 green or red fresh chilli de-seeded and finely chopped (optional )

15 ml/1 tablespoon olive oil

salt and black pepper

cayenne pepper

Tabasco sauce

 

Method

1. Finely chop the onion and crush garlic, I don’t use garlic, it is lighter and more summery with out the garlic, but it is your choice.

2. Peel the avocado and slice. Then cube, with a sharp, stainless steel knife.

3. Cube tomato.

4. Place ingredients in a serving bowl.

5. Salt and pepper, cayenne, tabasco, add lemon juice and drizzle with olive oil. It needs plenty of salt. Taste again just before serving.

6. Lightly mix with two forks and serve.

 

N.B. If not serving straight away, add the oil only and season just before serving.

This makes an excellent accompaniment ! You can also serve it on fresh, crispy lettuce leaves as a

starter.

 

 

 

Gather ingredients together.

 

Chop onion finely.

 

Peel avocado. Mine was perfectly ripe so the peel came off easily, but often one needs to cut it away with a

knife.

Slice and then cut long ways, followed by cross ways, to cube.

 

Season and drizzle with lemon and olive oil.

 

Final Result! Mix very lightly with two forks before serving.
