September 16, 2012 - National Guacamole Day!

Celebrate National Guacamole Day with the Avocado Diva

Yes, there truly is a day for each and every thing! 

Today (Sunday) is "National Guacamole Day". 

If you have never made guacamole - it's really pretty easy and very tasty and also quite good for you! It's a lower calorie dip than your average onion or ranch dip because avocados have way less fat than mayonaise or sour cream. (Plus - it's the "good" kind of fat.) 

That said - here is the simpliest recipe:

2 ripe avocados - smash them (with the skin off, and no pits)
sprinkle of lime or lemon juice
sprinkle of salt

Eat with tortilla chips

You can elaborate from there!  Most people have their "secret" recipe - and will add tomatoes, cilantro, onions, garlic, etc.  

If you'd like to learn more, please visit the Avocado Diva's blog "52 Weeks of Guacamole" by clicking on this link. You'll find loads of recipes and tips and tricks for making guacamole dips.

Now - won't you share YOUR favorite guacamole tip?!! Leave us a nice note in the comments about your favorite.
