I love everything about avocados. They are delicious, beautiful and nutritious. I have recently discovered my favorite guacamole at a local Saskatoon restaurant Las Palapas. It is very basic and really lets the avocado flavour shine. The recipe I have found that is closest to their delicious treat follows.
Avocado is a fruit. It has the highest protein and oil levels of all fruit. It is therefore a great source of energy and healthy fats. Avocados have the most concentrated source of nutrients in the darker green portion just beneath the skin. Try not to lose nutrients by peeling too far into the avocado. You can use avocado as a great addition to any snack or salad not just in guacamole!
Inspiration: My yearning for actual spring and summer instead of the dreary weather of this week. Guacamole always reminds me of summer. allrecipes.com has many great recipes to try including the one to follow.
