5-Greens Guacamole

Several years ago I was asked to create a guacamole recipe that was out of the ordinary for a publication I was writing for. I developed 2 recipes featuring creamy avocados, both were amazing so we tested them out on friends and took a poll. The Grapefruit Guacamole won out but I could never get 5-Greens Guacamole, featuring green apples and basil, out of my mind.

Since the summer snacking season is in full swing, it seemed like a good time to share this favorite today. The rich creamy concoction is ideal, served with a beer or my Grand Mariner Mojito Martini! Whew, now that’s a winning combination!!

5-Greens Guacamole

2 ripe avocados

1 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped

½ green apple, finely chopped

2 green onions, whites, and greens finely chopped

¼ cup basil cut in a chiffonade

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Coarsely mash avocados, add all other ingredients, and toss.  Serve with warm tortilla chips.

It’s hard to beet the simplicity of a great guacamole in the summer!
