Peach Guacamole

Peach Guacamole

I love all the flavours and colours that come with the summer season! So naturally, why not take one of my favourite dishes (simpel guac) and brighten it up with juicy, flavourful, sweet peach!

So refreshing and such a beautiful combination!

Hope you guys give it a try!

Peach Guacamole

Please note, this is my regular Guacamole recipe to which I’m simply adding a peach!

After you mashed the avocados in step 3, fold in 1 chopped (1/2-3/4 inch dice) ripe, but still firm, large peach. Proceed to step 4. That’s it!

DifficultyBeginner

Yields4 Servings

 4 avocados
 5-8 TBSP onion, diced finely (I prefer yellow, but red could also be used)
 2 tbsp lime juice, juice from 2 limes (if you don't have limes or don't like their taste, although not authentic, lemon juice could be substituted)
 kosher salt, to taste
 1 jalapeno, finely chopped (removed the seeds and membranes for a milder version)
Optional ingredients:
 pinch of cayenne
 pinch of cumin
 1 garlic clove, minced or crushed
  cup cilantro leaves, chopped finely
 1 tomato, seeded and chopped

1

Place the onions in a bowl, sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt and squeeze the lime juice on top. Toss the onions and let them sit for at least 10 minutes and up to 30 at room temperature.

2

Before adding avocados, be sure all of your additions are ready - chopped jalapenos, chopped cilantro, garlic, if using, etc.

3

Slice each avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop out the flesh into the bowl with onions. Repeat with the remaining avocados. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Mash with a fork ensuring some parts are mashed into a smooth paste while leaving plenty of chunks of various shapes and sizes. Place your prepared additional ingredients in the bowl and fold everything together.

4

Cover with plastic wrap pressing it directly against guacamole and squeezing any air pockets out. Allow to sit at room temperature for half an hour. Serve.
