Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Our family loves Mexican food, and today is the perfect excuse to enjoy! (As if we need a reason!) I first tasted this version of guacamole many years ago at a Mexican restaurant. It was made fresh to order. Although that restaurant is no longer in business, thanks to their table side preparation, I was able to duplicate it at home!
I think it's the surprise of orange that makes this recipe so good. It's a little sweeter than your traditional lemon or lime. You can adjust the quantities of any of the ingredients in this recipe to please your personal palate.
My Favorite Guacamole
2 Haas Avacodos, diced
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup tomato, diced (flesh only)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons diced red onion
1/4 cup rough chopped, loosely packed cilantro
generous pinch (or teaspoon) of kosher or sea salt, to taste
Mix together and enjoy!
