During my Easter trip to Romania, I stopped to visit one of my best friends. Near a chat, a laugh, and a great pleasure to see each other again, she put on the table a salad and some bread. While my attention was more on our conversation I was not quite realizing that I grabbed a spoon and put some salad on a slice of bread and taste it. Suddenly, my full attention switched to the green salad I was eating. "What is this?" was my next question. A soft creamy texture, a sour taste and a combination of flavors. She explained me that the amazing salad I was tasting was nothing else than guacamole. Huh? I knew about it, I've seen it before but never occurred to me to try it. So, I returned home with a recipe in mind that I put on my priority list to cook. Here it is ...

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 small onion
  • juice from 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • a pinch of salt

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender and mix for couple of minutes until you obtain a paste.
Couldn't be more simple and healthy than this.

The funny part of the story was how my daughter of 2 and a half years old was trying to pronounce GUACAMOLE ... she managed to combine all possible words she could pronounce and made as laughing a lot.
