Guacamole Recipe Round-Up

It’s nearly summertime, which means guacamole season is going to be up and running at full steam. I’m not upset about this in the slightest.

Just think about all the cook-outs at friends’ houses in your future. All the outdoor dining on restaurant patios and porches and sidewalks. The beachside snacks. Yep — summer is where it’s at.

Because guac is at the top of my list when it comes to summertime snacks, I thought I’d try to mix things up a bit and round up a few new takes on the dip to share with you guys. (Note: I haven’t tried most of these recipes myself, but they all sound amazing.)

  • Strawberry Goat Cheese Guacamole. My friend Micheal suggested adding goat cheese to guac to me, and I thought it was a genius idea. And incorporating strawberries, too, for some added brightness? Yes. Yes, please.

  • Grilled Guacamole with Parmesan and Basil. I’m a firm believer that just about anything is good on the grill (peaches, romaine, pound cake, etc.), and so why should guac be any exception? I like the incorporation of non-traditional guacamole flavors with the parmesan and basil, too.

  • Grapefruit Guacamole. I’m not a big fan of grapefruit on its own (unlike Kevin, who routinely buys them and peels and eats them like oranges), but grapefruit as an ingredient usually gets two thumbs up from me. (One of my favorite summertime beers is Shiner’s Ruby Redbird, made with grapefruit, and this grapefruit pound cake is divine.) All that to say, I’d love to give this grapefruit guac a try.
