I love to make this guacamole for company as a starter because it is very tasty but has few calories and isn’t filling–thus not ruining appetites for dinner! I serve this will vegetables like chunks of bell peppers and celery. Always keep tomatoes at room temperature for maximum flavor. Make this an hour or so before it will be consumed and don’t refrigerate. Do put leftovers away.
Which leads to the sad fact that avocadoes brown quickly and this dip won’t look great the next day. Just add some oil and lemon and you have a really tasty salad dressing!
