Something Tasty, Healthy and Green for St. Patrick's Day

This is a photo of my Good for You Guacamole
For low sodium diet you can try unsalted tortilla Chips (Whole Foods carries them)

Good for You Guacamole


3 ripe avocados mashed with fork or potato masher
2 lemons or limes juiced (I love a lemony guacamole)  add more lemon than this if you like
1 small onion finely chopped
1 chopped plum or Roma tomato or 10 to 20 cherry tomatoes chopped into quarters
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 jalapeno pepper chopped into small pieces
Salt  and pepper to taste (I don't use salt and it tastes great) besides if you are using tortilla chips for dipping they have enough sodium in them already.
Dashes of Hot pepper sauce as desired for an extra zing


Cut avocados in half and remove pit and skin.  Mash the avocados with a fork or potato masher.  Squeeze in lemon juice and add other ingredients--stir together until well combined.  Refrigerate until needed.  I eat it right away after I make it--it hardly ever gets a chance to chill---IT'S SO GOOD AND GOOD FOR YOU TOO!
