It was a hot holiday weekend and I had a pineapple I wanted to use up so I began searching for recipes. I found and tried this AMAZING recipe from Gimme Some Oven for Pineapple Guacamole. It was a hot weekend and was a refreshing twist on your traditional chips and salsa. I paired it with the Blue Corn chips suggested (which I prefer anyway) but had some leftover and I didn't want it to go bad.
I made the Pineapple Guacamole a tasty SALAD DRESSING! I tossed some romaine and spinach together, chopped up some grilled chicken I also made for the weekend and topped it all off with this healthy and delicious mixture in place of a regular salad dressing. It was the perfect summer salad!
Here is the recipe to create the simple and easy, Pineapple Guacamole.
3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
1 jalapeno, stem and seeds removed, minced (add more or less to taste)
1 1/2 cups diced fresh pineapple, plus extra for topping
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. coarse sea salt
dash of cumin
for serving: Garden of Eatin’ corn tortilla chips
Mash together avocados, jalapeno, pineapple, onion, lime juice, cilantro, salt, cumin with a fork until well-mixed.
Serve immediately, garnished with extra fresh pineapple and chopped cilantro, served with corn tortilla chips. Or cover the bowl with plastic wrap (so that the plastic is literally touching the entire top layer of the guacamole) and refrigerate.
