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.
