East Meets West: Asian Inspired Guacamole

All-American Recipe Contest 2014 First Prize Winner in the Guacamole, Salsa and Dips category. The author notes, “Since our great nation is a melting pot and California boasts a dominant Asian and Mexican culinary scene, this flavorful and refreshing guacamole is a fusion of the two cuisines. “

It has a refreshing crunch from the crisp jicama, a spicy bite from the freshly grated ginger, and an extra special zing from the lemongrass. Soy sauce replaces salt, red bell pepper fills in for the tomato, and cilantro still holds its own in this California twist on the Mexican "dip".
