4 ripe avocados

2 limes, juiced

1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped

1 big handful fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Halve and pit the avocados; with a spoon scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Mash the avocados with a fork, leaving them a bit chunky. Add the remaining ingredients, and fold everything gently together to mix. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  2. Lay a piece of plastic wrap right on the surface of the guacamole so it doesn't brown and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
