guacamole with grapes, cucumber


Traditionally, guacamole is prepared by crushing/mixing the ingredients in a  molcajete = stone mortar. It took me a while to find one that was both wide and deep enough to my liking. Even so, this one was barely big enough for the 2 avocados.

Cucumber? Grapes?
This is a somewhat unusual guacamole, but I very nice. I used a ripe cucumber that was left too long on the kitchen counter and had turned yellow. Those are sweeter and mellower than  the green ones. The cucumber added extra bulk without corrupting the avocado flavor or watering down the guacamole overly much, while the grapes added a sweeter overtone.  

I did not use onions or garlic in this one.


This is what you need for 3 servings:

  • 2 medium to large avocados
  • 6-10 sweet seedless grapes
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • 1 serrano pepper
  • 1/4 ripe salad cucumber
  • 1 tbsp.  green onion / chives
  • salt
  • hot chipotle sauce
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
