|FFWD ~ Guacamole with Tomatoes and Bell Peppers|
This week French Fridays is taking us South of the Border, with a delicious Guacamole, Tomato, and Bell Pepper recipe. According to Dorie, Guacamole is becoming a standard in France, being served at many Paris restaurants. Leave it to the French to kick it up a notch, serving guacamole as a base for salmon tartare, or as part of a layered crab salad.
I have never made my own guacamole. Quite honestly, they sell wonderful pre-made versions in the grocery store. I was surprised at how easy Dorie’s version is to put together, and how tasty it was! Yes, there is a difference between the store bought (even though very good) and freshly made!
|I loved the fresh flavor|
I trully enjoyed making the guacamole. Putting everything in a mortar and smashing it, was something I have never done. I use my mortar for spices and herbs. It seems I have been under using it. What a surprise? I have many kitchen gadgets that were “must haves” when I bought them, and are now under used.
This was a wonderful guacamole! Flavors were fresh. The lime juice not only prevented the avocado from turning black, but added a spark to the taste.
I will be serving this homemade version for the Fourth of July. I’m sure it will be enjoyed by all my guests. Happy Friday everyone!
