All Hail the Mighty Guacasalsamole

It seems that I have an avocado obsession of late. Throughout my journey to rid my daily life of processed food and focus on what really counts – beautiful whole foods, I’ve realized that I can eat avocados guilt-free.

The avocado is beautiful. Even visually, it’s gorgeous. Dark and pebbled on the outside and perfectly green and smooth on the inside. They are packed with nutrients, phytochemicals, monounsaturated fat, more potassium than a banana and contain a wide array of essential vitamins (B’s, E, & K). And let’s not forget the taste. Personally, I could eat one everyday. Oh yeah, I do.

So when Ron introduced me to his “GuacaSalsaMole” dish, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Over the 2 weeks that he and Simmah were visiting, the dish was made constantly.

Here’s what you need:

6 avocados, diced
8 – 10 Roma tomatoes
1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
2 fresh limes – juiced
½ large red onion chopped
2 tbsp freshly ground cumin
1 tbsp freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp Himalayan sea salt, or enough to season to your taste

The avocados and tomatoes are roughly chopped (big-ish chunks) and the whole shabang goes into a bowl. Don’t think “precision” when making this dish. Think “chop ‘em up and chuck ‘em into a bowl”. (thanks Simmah)

Do yourself a favour, make this for friends, family or just yourself and enjoy the perfection of The Avocado.

    I’m still on the fence about the name too. I prefer “Guacalsa” or “Salsacado”. ;-)
