We once had a summer student staying with us; she was from Mexico City and she taught me that salt is the game changer in an authentic Mexican Guacamole. Here, we stated 1/4 teaspoon, but feel free to add a little extra, mixed with the lime juice, it really takes the flavour to another level.


3 large ripe avocados, halved and pitted

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/2 cup finely chopped white onion

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Tortilla chips, to serve


In small bowl combine avocado, lime juice, and onion. Mash with fork until avocado

is still chunky. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.
