Guacamole is so easy to make, I don't know why anyone would buy it in the store.  Sometimes I have a difficult time making it because I can't find ripe avocados.  Sometimes all I can find are rock hard avocados and those don't work well in guacamole.  But the avocado I used last night to make this was perfect.  I've made guacamole before, but this was the first time I actually took the time to measure out the ingredients and write them down.  I'm glad I did, because it turned out perfectly and now I can make sure it's perfect every time!

Homemade Guacamole

1 ripe avocado
1 tsp fresh lime juice
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp grated onion
2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro

Mix all ingredients together.  Serve immediately.

Makes 6-8 servings.

I like to grate the onion so that there is a little bit of onion flavor, but no crunchy chunks.  I use my Microplane and it works perfectly.
