Chunky Guacamole | Chunky Avocado Salsa

Know what you eat: Many avocado recipes that you'll find in cookbooks and on the Internet include avocado as an ingredient in its raw, unheated form. I also favor this approach. I simply cannot think of a better way to preserve the health benefits made possible by avocado's unique and delicate fats. If you do plan to use avocado in a recipe that calls for heat, I recommend that you use the lowest possible temperature and least amount of cooking time that will still work with your particular recipe. My purpose in making this recommendation is to help you minimize damage to avocado's unique fats.

A Few Quick Serving Ideas
  • Use chopped avocados as a garnish for black bean soup.
  • Add avocado to your favorite creamy tofu-based dressing recipe to give it extra richness and a beautiful green color.
  • Mix chopped avocados, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice and seasonings for a rich-tasting twist on traditional guacamole...check this recipe for the same..
  • Spread ripe avocados on bread as a healthy replacement for mayonnaise when making a sandwich.
  • For an exceptional salad, combine sliced avocado with fennel, oranges and fresh mint.

No matter how wonderful a cook you are, you only succeed as a food blogger if you make your food appear delicious. You manage to do just that! I have been visiting your blog even before I started blogging. But I never got a chance to tell how wonderful you are & how much I enjoy your posts! :)
