My Favorite Guacamole & My Farmers Market

I was a little late in getting out the the door this morning, but I made it to Saturday's Farmers Market, and I am SO glad! Everything was bright and colorful - I felt like I was a kid in a candy shop. 
Needless to say it was really hard for me to focus...but I managed to harness all of my excitement and took a bunch of photos to share with you all...

All of that amazing produce definitely helped in working up quite the appetite, so by the time I got home I was ready for a snack. 
It seems like everyone I know has their own special recipe for Guacamole, and I though it was time for me to share my own personal favorite version of the popular dip, along with my favorite accompaniment.
AtV's Favorite Guacamole
3 Avocados (1 lb)
Mash your Avocados until smooth, then proceed to mix in the following:
1/2 c Sweet White Onion - minced
2 Tbsp dried Cilantro //or// dried Parsley
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Garlic Granules
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1/4 tsp Sea Salt (or to taste)
Ancho Chili Powder //or// Cayenne - to taste
My current favorite way to enjoy this Guacamole is with a crisp Apple...if you haven't tried this yet then you simply MUST the next time you have guacamole, regardless of whether or not it's my recipe or your own.

  6. Those tomatoes look incredible at the market. All the good ones are done for here :(

  7. I consider myself an equal opportunity guacamole lover. Yours looks like an interesting variation on my usual - thanks for sharing!

    I was just telling my husband about you the other night and how amazing I think you are. You come up with the best recipes and here is a classic example of that. Never would have thought of dipping apples in guac. Now I am going to start.
