CUCURBIT FARM GUACAMOLE

 

RED = Cucurbit Farm ingredients

 

SERVINGS: Makes 3 cups

START-TO-FINISH TIME: 15-20 minutes

 

What goes better as a late summer treat than a zesty guacamole? Using homegrown Cucurbit Farm tomatoes, onion, and garlic add a depth of flavor that can’t be beat. Couple with white corn tortilla chips and make it the centerpiece of your hors d'oeuvre platter.

 

INGREDIENTS

3 ripe avocados

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed

lemon juice (1 lemon)

½ cup red onion, diced small (1 small onion)

1 large garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 medium tomato, seeded, diced small

OPTIONAL: 8 dashes Tabasco sauce

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocados in the bowl. Immediately add the lemon juice, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper (and optional Tabasco if desired) and toss well.

 

2. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and add additional salt and pepper to suit taste. Serve at once and enjoy the fresh offerings from Cucurbit Farm!

 

NOTE: Put leftovers in an airtight container, pressing a piece of plastic wrap on top of the guacamole before sealing container (prevents browning). Don’t expect any leftovers, however!
