Ingredients
  • 2 Haas avocados (peeled and pitted)
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 lime, halved
  • 1 medium sized ripe tomato, diced
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
Instructions
  1. Place the avocado in a mixing bowl and mash the flesh.
  2. Add in the salt and squeeze in the lime juice, you would want about 2 tablespoons of lime juice, so if your lime is very juicy you may not want the entire lime.

  4. Stir in the cilantro.
  5. Heat the oil and add in the cumin and the garlic and cook for about 2 minutes until the cumin is all toasty and the garlic is fragrant and a pale toffee color.
