Simple Guacamole (Avocado Salad)

Here is a very simple and quick as a wink Guacamole or Avocado salad. Perfect avocados don't need a lot of embellishments - just a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of salt and freshly ground pepper are all it needs.

2 servings


1 Avocado
1/2 Lemon or Lime
1 pinch of salt or to taste
Freshly ground Black Pepper
1 small clove of Garlic, minced (or garlic powder) (Optional)
2 Tbsp minced Onion (Optional)


Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and keep aside. Score the flesh of the avocado without cutting through the skin all the way. 

Scoop the flesh from avocado using a spoon into a bowl and discard the skins. Add the other ingredients and lime or lemon juice. Mash lightly with a fork and mix well. 

Place the pit into the salad and cover with plastic wrap to prevent browning which results from oxidation due to exposure to air. 

Serve right away with warm corn tortillas, tortilla chips, raw vegetables, quesadillas, Mexican beans, etc. or spoon into hollowed small or cherry tomatoes for quick and wonderful appetizers. Enjoy!!
