The ubiquitous Guacamole is a Mexican dip that makes a healthy appetizer or party nibble to go along with grilled vegetables, tortilla chips and even perfect for scooping over Zucchini Chips. I go somewhat off piste when making guacamole because I think it shouldn't be paste like as a pesto. I like to feel the textures of  all the ingredients that go into making guacamole  and so I stick to the chunkier version. 

Deviating from the typical ho hum guacamole recipe I am making mine like a salad with bell peppers. Bell peppers are not only rich in vitamin c and beta carotene but also add  a mildly sweet taste along with a crunch to the guacamole.  I think the sweetness and crunch from the bell peppers complements the creaminess of the avocados. Guacamole is slightly zingy and for that I am using some lemon juice.


I have used red onions rich in vitamin B6 for this recipe but you can use golden onions that are sweeter in taste. I like to use a little black pepper for the kick but you can add red pepper flakes if you like more heat. For making the Chunky Guacamole Salad use avocados that are ripe but not too soft to touch. I often buy under ripe avocados which can be ripened by wrapping them in a paper bag along with  a granny smith apple or a banana. The bag is used to trap the ethylene gas which ripens the avocado.


This Chunky Bell Pepper Guacamole Salad is super healthy full of vitamins from the vegetables along with healthy fats from the avocados. This zingy, chunky and at the same time creamy salad is perfect for a summer backyard cookout or as an ideal starter for a dinner party.
