I don’t know about you, but I have been eating guacamole all summer long! The past few months I have been testing guacamole recipes with different ingredients, flavors, and textures to give this classic dip an MJS twist. My Green Apple Guacamole is filled with crunchy green apples, spicy green onion, and of course creamy Hass avocados. As it turns out, green apples not only add fabulous crunch, but also a little bit of tartness that really cuts through the richness of the avocados. A classic, updated - enjoy!
Green Apple Guacamole
Ingredients (makes 3 cups)
Lime Juice – 1 small lime, fresh
Hass Avocados – 3 ripe, pitted, flesh removed
Granny Smith Apple – 2 large, cored, ¼-inch diced
Jalapeño – 1 small, fresh, seeded, finely diced
Green Onion – ½ cup, thinly sliced, white and green parts
Parsley – ½ cup, finely minced, Italian flat leaf variety
Sea Salt – 1½ teaspoons
Black Pepper – 1 teaspoon, freshly cracked
In a large bowl, add the freshly-squeezed lime juice and avocados.
Using two sharp knives in a crisscross action, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced but still have some texture.
Lastly, add the remaining ingredients and gently toss.
