Shouldn't this recipe fall more in a Mexican Monday category?
Dorie says that guacamole is becoming more standard fare in Paris these days, but they use it in decidedly French ways ... like making it into a tartine (an open-faced sandwich) topped with baby shrimp, or paired with smoked salmon. That sounds delicious, right?
I am a guacamole purist. I like mashed avocado with tiny, cubed cucumber mixed in, lime juice and a little salt. When I read Dorie's list of ingredients ... red pepper, purple onion, jalapeno, lime zest, tomatoes, hot sauce ... I wanted to be the rebel and make my own lovely guac, but I decided to play nice. Of course, I really enjoyed it and it was wonderful with pork carnitas ... and baked blue corn chips.
