  • 2 Green onions, minced

This next recipe is for the closest thing you will find to a green
salad in classic Mexican cooking. Although many fresh vegetables are
used in both Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes, they usually are
incorporated in the dish, rather than served separately.

Guacamole (Wahk-uh-MOLE-ay) is an avocado-based relish/sauce/salad
that may be used as a garnish, accompaniment or first course (often
in this role, accompanied by crisp-fried tortilla wedges for dipping).

For a really elegant (and typically Mexican) presentation, serve the
Guacamole in individual lettuce cups, garnished with a radish rose.

Peel and seed the avocados. Place one avocado in a bowl and mash
until smooth. Coarsely chop the second avocado and stir it in, along
with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately if possible.

NOTE: Some cooks prefer to puree all the avocado. For my taste, this
makes the dish seem uncomfortably like baby food, but if you prefer it
smooth, go for it.

If this sauce is to be held for any length of time at all, return the
avocado pits to the mixture (this helps prevent discoloration), and
cover with plastic wrap, placed directly on the mixture, pressing
down to eliminate all air. Avocados discolor to a nasty brown if
left exposed to the air.
