Guacamole á la Martha

If you're lucky enough to have a perfectly ripe avocado -- just squishable but not squishy -- a fresh lemon, AND a bottle of all natural salsa (the freshly made salsa in the vegetable section of the supermarket tends to have preservatives added -- check before you buy), your guacamole is minutes away.  Simply slice the avocado in half, remove the avocado pit (unfortunately you can no longer use these pits to grow avocado trees -- probably because they have been genetically modified in some way), dig out the avocado flesh and mash with a fork, leaving the mashed avocado ever so slightly chunky.  Add a tablespoon of salsa and a squeeze of freshly squeezed lemon juice -- more or less, depending on your taste -- stir with fork, and you have just prepared guacamole, absolutely delicious and freshly made, WITH NO PRESERVATIVES! Hope you have some chips around  . . . 

Thanks to Martha McCool for the recipe!


  1. I made it last night it was so good.

  2. If no salsa handy, then a fresh tomato chopped up plus lots of garlic with cayenne and coriander to taste..on greasy corn chips, or for the virtuous, celery

  3. Most recently, I have simply drizzled a little bit of organic first press olive oil onto the yummy avocado and included a dash of freshly ground pepper and freshly ground Himalaya pink salt followed by one squeeze of freshly cut up lemon. YMMMMM yummy . . . I could eat an entire avocado for dinner done up this way!!
