Greek-inspired Guacamole

Greek-inspired Guacamole

Simple, flavorful Greek-inspired guacamole with just 8 ingredients! Enjoy as an appetizer or side alongside Greek- or Mediterranean-inspired meals.

Makes: 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 medium to large Ripe Avocados, halved and pit removed
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • 1 Tbsp Sun-dried Tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp Diced Ripe Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup Diced Red Onion
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Optional: 4 Kalamata Olives, pitted and chopped

Instructions

  1. Add avocado and lemon juice to a large mixing bowl and use a potato masher, pastry cutter, or large fork to mash and mix.
  2. Add remaining ingredients (olives are optional), and stir to combine (see photo). Sample and add salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Adjust other flavors if needed, adding more lemon for acidity, sun-dried tomato for deeper tomato flavor, onion for crunch/spice, or parsley or oregano.
  4. Enjoy immediately with pita, pita chips, or vegetables! Best when fresh, though leftovers keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
