I think it’s safe to say that everyone loves guacamole!

Seriously. Whether it’s an appetizer at dinner or a party dip, it seems to disappear in no time. It’s no surprise—the main ingredient, avocado is like butter for the plant-based community. As if that wasn’t enough, most guacamole makers add a large dose of salt, which makes it even more irresistible.

Lucky for you, this Classic Guacamole recipe is loaded with all of the most popular added ingredients. With top-notch flavor, you’ll be satisfied without added salt. One of the secrets is extra lime.

That being said, I am not the salt police. After the recipe is made and you give it a good taste as is, feel free to sprinkle a little on top to your liking.

    What a vicious recipe. I love Guacamole. What do you usually serve it with. What are you serving it with in the picture?
