1 ripe avocado, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 tablespoon finely chopped yellow onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro leaves

2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the avocado with the onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and salt and mash with the back of a fork until mostly smooth.
  2. Serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap (pressed directly onto the surface of the guacamole) and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
