Strawberry Guacamole

We've intentionally omitted chiles from this guacamole, but please feel free to add some if you want the heat! Just a serrano or half jalapeño minced will do.

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: Makes about 2 1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and seeded (seeHow to Cut and Peel an Avocado)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tbsp lime or lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1 cup chopped cored strawberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweetened dried cranberries (omit for paleo version)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro (optional)

Method

1 Mash the avocados: Mash up the flesh of two avocados with a fork. Don't overdo it, the guacamole should have some texture.

2 Add lime juice, salt, onion, strawberries, dried cranberries, cilantro: Stir in the lime juice and salt. Stir in the red onion, the chopped dried cranberries, and most of the strawberries (reserve a few chopped strawberries for the top).

3 Adjust salt and lime juice to taste: Taste and adjust salt and lime juice if needed. Guacamole is all about balance of the creamy flesh of the avocado with the acid in the lime and the salt.

4 Top with more strawberries: Serve topped with remaining chopped strawberries. Serve with tortilla chips

To store, cover with plastic wrap so that no air touches the guacamole, chill until ready to serve.

    I have fresh strawberries and peaches. Now all I need is an avocado. As much as I use avocado in salads, I’ve never thought to try it this way. Great idea!

    Never thought of adding strawberries. But wow this really made the guacamole pop. Next batch I’m gonna add some jalapenos

    I have never considered adding strawberries but have added mango add a touch of cayenne pepper in the past.
