I love guacamole! Guacamole is a dip made traditionally from avocados, with additions of tomato, onion, lime juice, and seasonings. It ranges in texture from a thick sauce to a chunky dip. Health tip–Avocados are packed with more than twenty vitamins, contain “good fats” that reduce cholesterol, can help fight cancer, and can be used as a substitute for butter or shortening in baking!
Because I love guacamole, we have it as a standard dip or spread in our house. Some people like guacamole smooth, but we prefer it chunky with nice pieces of avocado, tomato, and often, fruit added to the spices. We received some beautiful grapefruit in our Bountiful Baskets. I cut up the grapefruit and added segments into the guacamole instead of the traditional lime. Wow! What a twist!

I need yo know what the 2′ flesh colored produce was that we got in this weeks basket? I’m guessing a daikon radish? How to use it?
