Serves 6


  • 2 ripe avocados (ripe: indents easily with the firm press of a finger)
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves minced (remove stems before measuring)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 scallions (green onions), finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (optional)


  1. Cut the avocados in half lengthwise, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of the peels.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a bowl.
  3. Blend with a fork until the mixture is just slightly lumpy.
