I initially shared this recipe here a couple of years ago, but it has become such a summertime staple in our house, and I’ve made some subtle changes to it along the way, so I decided to share this updated version. This guac is simple to make and incredibly refreshing. It’s become one of my go-tos for both everyday snacking and to serve at summer gatherings.
3 large, ripe avocados
1 cup watermelon, cut into cubes
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
6-8 fresh basil leaves, cut into strips
Cut avocados in half, remove pits and skin, and swash with a fork or masher in a medium size bowl to desired consistency. Cut and cube watermelon. Slice the basil into strips. Combine the cubed watermelon, about 3/4 of the basil strips, and the crumbled feta with the mashed avocado. Squeeze half a lime over the top, add a little salt and pepper, top with the remaining basil, and serve!
