Guacin’ and rollin’ today!

It’s the best day ever; my favorite dip has become a salad! This chunky, bite-sized deconstructed guacamole salad is sure to be on repeat in our house this summer. Think about it: buttery diced avocados, minced onions, generous sprinklings of cilantro, and bright, juicy tomatoes. All my favorite summer produce tossed in a bowl and served drizzled with a cumin-lime dressing.

But also, how good would a guacamole salad be with crushed tortilla chips added in there? Or wait, even better – you can use tortilla chips as a utensil. Okay, I digress. Consider this permission for us all to eat guacamole salad as a chunky guacamole dip.

I’m not mad about that.

Guacamole is an essential food group for me.

Basically, anything with avocado is a go in my book. So one evening when I was putting dinner together and had a craving from guac (but really, when do I not) I chopped up a few avocados, plum tomatoes, through in some cilantro leaves and minced onions. That’s when I knew that what I deemed the best salad in the world was, in fact, a deconstructed guacamole salad.

HOW WE MAKE GUACAMOLE SALAD:

I’M WORRIED MY GUACAMOLE SALAD IS GOING TO BE TOO SPICY, HOW CAN I MAKE IT MILD?

You can make my guacamole salad as mild as you like! Here are a few ways how:

  • omit the grated jalapeños or serranos
  • leave out the cayenne pepper all together
  • don’t use cayenne pepper or the grated jalapeno peppers, swap it all out for black pepper instead
