“Keep it Simple” Guacamole and Salsa Recipes


It’s fashionable these days to take basic recipes for dishes such as guacamole and salsa and add all kinds of flavor enhancing herbs and spices.

But I learned from a Mexican friend that keeping it simple is the secret to a great “guac” and salsa.

Here are the recipes I use when I’m settling down to drink a Kombucha-Ritas or two with chips and salsa.

Primal Island Simple Guacamole

4 avocados 

¼ diced red onion

1 T cilantro (optional)

1 minced or pressed garlic clove 

Salt and pepper to taste

Mash avocados and mix all ingredients together.  Garnish with extra cilantro and red onions. 

If not serving immediately add ¼ lime or lemon juiced or 1 tsp lime or lemon juice (I highly recommend Santa Cruz brand).  Adding the citrus will keep it from turning brow

And if you’re looking for grain free chips, my favorite brand is Siete, which you can buy online.

Easy Roma Salsa

2 roma tomatoes, finely diced

¼ red onion, finely diced

½ tsp olive oil

1 tsp cilantro, chopped

Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together.  Garnish with extra red onion and/or cilantro and enjoy! Simple, yet delicious!
