EASY GUACAMOLE SALAD

Everyone’s favorite guacamole dip becomes a salad. My deconstructed guacamole salad is sure to be a hit with everyone this summer. Perfect for potlucks, parties, and summer barbecues! So yummy and so easy!

Guacin’ and rollin’ today!




It’s the best day ever; my favorite dip has become a salad! This chunky, bite-sized deconstructed guacamole salad is sure to be on repeat in our house this summer. Think about it: buttery diced avocados, minced onions, generous sprinklings of cilantro, and bright, juicy tomatoes. All my favorite summer produce tossed in a bowl and served drizzled with a cumin-lime dressing.
But also, how good would a guacamole salad be with crushed tortilla chips added in there? Or wait, even better – you can use tortilla chips as a utensil. Okay, I digress. Consider this permission for us all to eat guacamole salad as a chunky guacamole dip.

I’m not mad about that.

Guacamole is an essential food group for me.
Basically, anything with avocado is a go in my book. So one evening when I was putting dinner together and had a craving from guac (but really, when do I not) I chopped up a few avocados, plum tomatoes, through in some cilantro leaves and minced onions. That’s when I knew that what I deemed the best salad in the world was, in fact, a deconstructed guacamole salad.

HOW WE MAKE GUACAMOLE SALAD:

  1. Combine the ingredients for the salad dressing in a mason jar or a bowl with a whisk, set aside.
  2. Chop avocados and tomatoes. Mince the onions, and clean the cilantro leaves. 
  3. Add all the chopped components in a bowl and toss with the dressing. DONE.

I’M WORRIED MY GUACAMOLE SALAD IS GOING TO BE TOO SPICY, HOW CAN I MAKE IT MILD?

You can make my guacamole salad as mild as you like! Here are a few ways how:
  • omit the grated jalapeños or serranos
  • leave out the cayenne pepper all together
  • don’t use cayenne pepper or the grated jalapeno peppers, swap it all out for black pepper instead

WHAT CAN I SERVE GUACAMOLE SALAD WITH?



chicken carnitas
chicken fajitas
steak fajitas
steak fajita bowls
ancho chicken tacos
and basically with anything you’d serve guacamole with!
