Introduction: Chunky Bell Pepper Guacamole Salad
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.
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.
