Avocado is an acquired taste. Only recently have I warmed to its most popular application- guacamole. I am truly kicking myself for missing out. What initially turned me off is the brown bitter mess served at most restaurants. A friend insisted I try some from Whole Foods and since then I was hooked. What isn't exactly pleasing about purchasing at Whole Foods is the price. Making this at home allows me to control the flavors and the price. If you like more heat add more jalapeno or add more tomato for a more summery flavor. What I liked best about this approach is the avocado is still a bit chunky and each ingredient ensures that the avocado tastes better. Enjoy!

Inspired by Whole Foods
Serves 2

2 ripe Haas avocado, seeded
juice of half of lime
1 roma tomato, seeded and finely chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 large bunch of flat leaf parsley or cilantro
1 small jalapeno, seeded and diced

Remove the avocado skin and chop into medium sized pieces. With the back end of a fork, mash the avocado until slightly smooth with small chunks. In a separate bowl, combine the tomato, shallot, flat leaf parsley and jalapeno and mix well. Add the lime juice to the avocado. Then add the remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that
I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!
