To find a Frenchman, look for the freshly baked baguette tucked under his arm. Few Parisians manage to make it home without breaking off a chunk and enjoying the warm, yeasty goodness. Perhaps if they knew this savory French-style guacamole awaited them, more baguettes would survive to the front door!
ripe, Fresh California Avocados
fresh lemon juice
finely chopped shallot
chopped, fresh tarragon (or 1/2 that amount dried)
- Coarsely mash (DO NOT PUREE) avocados.
- Stir in lemon juice.
- Fold in remaining ingredients.
Spread on slices of toasted baquette.
Try with your favorite French wine.
Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap directly against the surface of the guacamole.
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.
