Going to a party can be stressful; what do you wear, will you know other people there, and most importantly, what should you bring to eat? Trying to find a suitable hors d’oeuvres that will be enjoyed by everyone and is a change-up from the usual sausage rolls or cheese platters can be a challenge.
Homemade guacamole provides a nice change that is delicious and healthy! According to Avocado.org, one avocado has 20 essential vitamins, and they help your body absorb fat-soluble nutrients. To top it off, they have also been linked with a healthy diet to help one steer clear of cardiovascular disease. So, go ahead, whip up this yummy dip, grab your whole wheat chips, and tell your friends you are helping save their lives.
The measurements provided can be adjusted. If you really enjoy onions, then go ahead, get a little crazy and add some more. If you are planning on skipping some of the items, that is fine as well, but I suggest keeping the lemon juice, as it not only adds flavor, but it actually keeps the avocado from turning brown.
There are, however, many people who find guacamole unappetizing. Whether it be the color, taste, or the mushy texture of avocados, they are just not for everyone. So, if you fall into the category of people who do not enjoy guacamole, but are still looking for a healthy alternative, then turn to homemade salsa. A similar concept, making salsa requires little ingredients and little preparation time.
