A Refreshing Twist on Traditional Guacamole

Five words or less(NewsUSA) – In America, the most typical way to use avocados is in guacamole, which is frequently eaten as an appetizer and served with tortilla chips.
Mexican Chef Roberto Santibanez explains that guacamole is rarely served like that in his home country, and encourages people to explore other usages, such as adding guacamole to soups, eating with rice, serving it alongside grilled meats or on top of tacos. Not only is guacamole versatile, but a one-ounce serving of avocado contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals as well as mono- and polyunsaturated fats — the “good” fats.
For a refreshing twist on this traditional Mexican dish, Santibanez recommends jazzing up the classic guacamole with pineapple and cucumbers. He describes that “the soft crunch of cucumber, the sweet-tart flavor of pineapple and the creaminess of the avocado give each bite a flavorful punch perfect for pairing with grilled salmon, shrimp, steak and more.”
