I can’t get enough of avocados in the summertime! I absolutely love them — on their own, in salads, avocado fries, and of course, in a guacamole recipe!
The key to making fantastic guacamole is starting with fantastic avocados! And I have a new avocado find I’m excited to tell you about! Paradise Grove Avocados! My-oh-my, do they grow absolutely delicious, beautiful Hass avocados! They’re thin-skinned, with great flavor and a wonderfully creamy, super smooth texture.
And here’s something interesting. . . see the darker green color along the edge? That’s the part that comes into contact with the skin. It contains more nutrients than any other part of the fruit. Make sure you get all that good stuff!
Please remember that the fat in avocados is the good kind! It’s good for you! Avocados are also full of antioxidants and offer numerous other health benefits. I say have an avocado a day!
When I created this recipe I had just been given a beautiful bag of Melissa’s Key limes from Adventures With Nancy Rose. (Thank you!) I couldn’t resist using them! I love their sweet and tangy flavor!
