- 4 avocados
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons onion, finely diced
- 2 limes, juice only
- 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1/2 tomato, diced
Cut avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the seed and scoop out the pulp with a spoon. In a large bowl mash the avocados with a fork until they reach a smooth consistency. Stir in salt, onion, lime juice and cilantro. Garnish with tomato on top. Cover tightly. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours for best flavor.
