Individual Guacamole Salads

This is another recipe from Risa, our boat charter chef.  These are wonderful as an appetizer or even fun for a party as the avocado shells serve as the bowls and are easy to hold.

3-4 medium ripe avacados

2-3 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

2-3 tbsp. fresh lime juice

2 mangos finely diced

1/2 medium red onion finely diced

2 tomatoes seeded and finely diced

sour cream – optional

Cut the avacados lengthwise, gently remove the pit and the pulp from the hull. Coarsely chop the pulp with a fork. Stir in 2 tbsp. of the cilantro, lime juice and add salt and pepper to taste.  Mix together the mango and red onion.  Assemble the “bowls”.  Place desired amount of the guacamole in the shell, add some tomato and then the mango/onion mixture.  Repeat with the remaining shells.  Arrange on a platter. Garnish with the remaining cilantro.  Serve with a side of sour cream if desired.
