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!



Serving Size: 8

4 ripe, Fresh California Avocados
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup finely chopped shallot
3 Tbsp. dry vermouth
2 Tbsp. chopped, fresh tarragon (or 1/2 that amount dried)
1 tsp. salt
