Plain guacamole is delish, but you can jazz it up by adding tons of fresh herbs. The herbs are also full of phytonutrients to make a healthy recipe into an extra healthy one. Full of healthy fats, vitamins A and E, folate and potassium, pair this dip with celery sticks, baked corn tortilla chips or romaine leaves.
- 2 whole, ripe avocados
- Juice of one lime
- ¼ cup chopped herbs – experiment with cilantro, Italian parsley, basil and mint
- Salt and pepper to taste
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit and scoop the flesh into a large bowl. Add the lime juice and mash. Stir in salt to taste and fold in the chopped herbs so as not to crush them. Makes about 2 cups of dip.
