We love this guacamole salad. It’s the perfect light and refreshing side dish to your favorite tacos or enchiladas – and has all of the components of guacamole! So delicious and simple and customizable.
My favorite dip in salad form? Um yes, hi, hello!
I’m very excited to share our new go-to side dish when I’m doing any kind of taco or tex-mex night at home. This is such a lovely side dish – it can be a salad-like side you eat with a fork or something you scoop up with chips. All the things that you love in guacamole are tossed here in a bowl with tons of lime!
This is embarrassingly easy and doesn’t necessarily require a recipe, but is one of those things I like to share with you so it’s on your radar. In your mind when you’re planning means and thinking of what to make or eat. Sort of like my hummus quesadillas or smashed potatoes or ranch dressing.
I want this to have a home!
Since guacamole is one of my favorite snacks ever, I am verrrrry thrilled about this option. Let’s just say it’s constantly in rotation these days. It’s essentially chunky guac with lettuce… that I’m calling salad.
See, our local Mexican restaurant serves many of their entrees with “guacamole salad.” It happens to be a bed of shredded lettuce topped with traditional guac, which doesn’t sound like much. But it’s super good and a nice light side. Something more refreshing and lighter than rice or beans, you know?
Sometimes it’s a second side to the dish too. So you get rice AND guacamole salad. I love that. (more…)
