Fruity Guac

Rebecca Clyde, MS, RDN, CD

While guacamole is tasty in its traditional form, step it up a notch by adding seasonal fruit. Incorporate strawberries in the spring, mango in the summer, figs in the fall and grapes during the winter. 

Ingredients

2 Hass avocados, cubed

½ cup seasonal fruit, diced (strawberry, mango, fig or grape)
¼ cup finely chopped Spanish onion
1 plum tomato, seeds removed, finely diced (optional)
1 small  jalapeño pepper (with seeds), minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
1 small clove garlic, minced
⅛ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
