  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 lime
  • 2-3 tablespoons of finely chopped onion (white or yellow)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)


  • Finely chop 2-3 tablespoons of onion.  Use the back of a fork to smoosh the onion until it turns translucent.
  • Add the onion to a bowl along with the flesh of one avocado, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and the juice of a half lime.  Mush and mix well.
  • Taste for salt level.  (Avocados vary and some need more salt than others.)
  • Keep adding tiny dashes of salt (and lime) until you like it. If it still tastes like avocado add another dash of salt.
  • Serve immediately.


The easiest way to keep ripe avocados on hand is to use the refrigerator. Once ripe, put them in the fridge and they'll keep for another 4-6 days.  How I use unripe avocados. 
This core recipe is the foundation for countless other variations that involve additional ingredients.
