Guacamole Reinvented

Don't be afraid of the unique ingredient combinations in this deconstructed guacamole recipe from Vegetarian Times. The ingredients actually work together wonderfully and form a delightful range of tastes from crunchy to peppery to creamy and everything in between. The fusion of flavors also creates a spectacular blend of colors that are perfectly presented in the avocado shells.

Guacamole Reinvented
Gluten Free
Serves Two

1 small avocado
1 small orange
5-6 radishes, diced
1/3 cup romaine lettuce, finely chopped
1 tbsp. lime juice
1-2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

1. Halve & pit avocado. Score each avocado half with a paring knife 7 times lengthwise and 7 times crosswise to form a dice (don't worry if it's not exact). Use a large spoon to scoop out avocado pieces and place in a medium bowl. Reserve avocado shells.

2. Use a knife to cut peel and pith from orange, then slice into 4 slices. Cut each orange slice into 6 small triangular pieces. Add to bowl with diced avocado.

3. Add radishes, romaine, lime juice, and parsley to bowl. Gently mix ingredients together.

4. Scoop avocado mixture into reserved avocado shells. Serve immediately.
