How do you choose a good avocado?
Working with fresh ingredients can make all the difference when cooking. There’s nothing worse than getting an avocado at the store, and finding it all brown inside. When looking for a good avocado, choose one that is bright green, and hard. It will continue to ripen over the next 2-3 days and be perfect.
If you need an avocado that day, choose one that is a bit darker green, but doesn’t “give” when you gently push with your thumb. If the tip is still green when you remove the stem, it’s a good avocado. If the tip is at all brown, then it’s gone bad.
- 3 ripe avodados
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 red onion, finely chopped
- 1 roma tomato, finely chopped
- 1 Tablespoon dried cumin
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- Cut avocados in half lengthwise. Using a sharp knife, carefully place into avocado pit and twist to remove pit. Discard pit and scoop fruit into a medium sized mixing bowl.

- Stir in tomatoes.
- Can be enjoyed immediately, but for best flavor, cover and store in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld.
