Italian Style Guacamole

IMG_0379

One of the best things about summer is the fresh avocados. I buy them all year round, but they never taste as great as they do in the summer. I love putting avocados in my salad, in my wraps, and in my omelets, but nothing compares to turning them into guacamole.

My friend’s dad always makes an Italian style guacamole. I love a garlic based guacamole; I’m not a fan of eating it plain. I hate boring. Whenever we are over for dinner, he usually has a giant bowl sitting on the counter for us, and it’s to die for. I decided to make his version for our cookout yesterday to go with the peach salsa.

Start adding salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Use your tastebuds to determent if you need more of the three. I kept adding them until it was perfect!

I garnished the guacamole with a tomato slice, lime, parsley, and pepper!

The guacamole was a hit! I like to use carrot chips with it. The dip had so much flavor and I could have eaten it all night! Some put it on their burgers.
