Guacamole

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Given how much I love avocados (as mentioned in my Kale Avocado Salad recipe), it’s no wonder that guacamole is one of my favorite dips. You can’t help but feel festive serving guacamole, and on top of that, avocados are good for you as they are packed with vitamins, fiber, protein and the “good fats”. Enjoy!
