You will love how easy this dip is to make!
- Cut the avocados in half and save the pits for later. Scoop the flesh into a large bowl and add the lemon zest, lime zest, lemon juice, lime juice, sea salt and pepper and mash the ingredients together until the avocado is smooth (or the consistency you desire – I prefer to leave a few chunks).
- Add the remaining ingredients and stir everything together
Tips for making guacamole:

- If you are serving a large group feel free to double the recipe
- This recipe is best if served right away as the avocados will oxidize in the fridge if left for more than a couple hours

Frequently Asked Questions:
How long can you store guacamole in the fridge: Unfortunately guacamole turns brown really quickly in the fridge as the avocados oxidize soon after it is exposed to the air. However, as long as you don’t mind the brown color it will still taste good for 1-2 days. A couple tricks to help it stay fresh are to keep the pits from the avocados and add them to the dip when storing it. The lemon juice and lime juice also help keep it fresh. And always store it in an air-tight container.
Can I leave out the cilantro? I realize that some people don’t like cilantro. If that’s you, feel free to omit it from the recipe. You could substitute for other herbs such as parsley if you wish.
Can I leave out the tomatoes? Yes! If you don’t like tomatoes in your guacamole simply omit them from the recipe. This will also decease the carb count of this guacamole.
