Gorgeous Guacamole

A kind of hybrid between guacamole and salsa, this recipe always goes down a treat. It’s my go-to recipe for parties, and people often beg me to bring it next time. It’s a refreshing combination of mexican flavours, and a delicious way to get some of your daily veggie intake!

Guacamole is an avocado dish that originates from the Aztecs in Mexico. It translates to mean ‘avocado sauce’. These days there are endless versions of guacamole, and I have tried several in my time. This is definitely my favourite!

Ingredients 

2-3 avocados
3-4 tomatoes
Big handful of fresh coriander (cilantro)
4 spring onions
1/2 small red onion
Juice of 1-2 lemons, or limes
Salt and pepper
Optional: jalapeños

Directions 

Slice avocados in half, remove the pit. Using your knife, cut a criss-cross pattern in the avocado flesh, then scoop out into a large mixing bowl. Dice tomatoes into small cubes, add to the bowl. Slice the red onion and spring onion, finely chop all the coriander and add to the avocado and tomato. Squeeze lemon juice over top and season with salt and pepper. Grab a spoon and stir gently to mix. Add some chopped jalapeños if you like it a little bit spicy!

Serve with corn chips (not primal), seed crackers (sometimes primal), serve it over steak or chicken (primal) or just eat on its own!
