  • Doesn’t this look amazing? Wait until you’ve tasted it to see what I’m talking about … It’s De-li-cious!

Notes

In my experience, the secret to making the best guacamole is using a super creamy avocado and enough onion or leeks, as well as a quality salt. Make sure that your avocado is creamy yet its texture looks perfectly intact. I’ve also discovered that organically grown avocados are great every time.
The key to balancing the fatty taste of the avocado are using enough salt, as well as using lime or grapefruit juice. Play with these two until you find the right amounts, making sure to taste the guacamole before serving (and adding more of these key ingredients if needed).
Keep in mind that your salt needs can change during the day (based on your activity level, stress, etc) so take this into consideration as well.
