Default Salsa and Guacamole

Couldn't decide what to do for dinner tonight but when I saw avocados for 20p each and red onions I was on a roll.

So it's

Salsa,

1 beef tomato, rough chopped
1/2 mango, rough chopped
1/2 red onion, medium chopped
1 finely chopped chilli
2 cloves of garlic
1 lime juiced
1/2 lemon juiced
chopped fresh coriander leaves
pinch powdered coriander seeds
1 table spoon olive oil.
Salt and course ground pepper to taste

Guacamole

4 ripe avocados (3 pulverised 1 roughly chopped)
1 finely chopped medium chilli (some seeds left in)
Splash of lime and lemon juice.
Splash of olive oil.
Salt (very little) to taste

Both left to warm marinade for 1 hour then 3 hours chilled.

Served with Corn Chips and LARGE glass of chilled South East Australian Chardonnay.

Starters

A large field mushroom served on a Bed of rocket leaves.
Dressed with smoked salmon in a lime and chili dressing.

Mains

Now this is where it gets rustic!
Rack of ribs in a sweet BBQ sauce served with grilled smoked Bratwurst and Austrian salsa filled pork meat balls. Accompanied by sliced new potatoes roasted in olive oil and cracked black pepper
Accompanied with 1 or more (definitely more) bottles of Leffe.

Desert

Home made lemon tarts and a glass of carrot wine.

Finish off-

With Hob goblin until I can't focus and it's bed time.


Not just food but Orfy food.

Orfy- that sounds amazing! Alot of thought and effort went into that meal. (I hope that such an effort for the dinner and wine was rewarded by your SWMBO!)

I just tried a different guacamole recipe. I'm gonna leave it to sit 30 minutes before trying it,
2 avocadoes
1 tomato deseeded pulped
1 deseeded chilli
coarse salt and pepper ground in a mortar
half a red onion
Juice one lime.


Can't deside whether to serve it with toasted pitta or corn chips.

I wish I kept track of exact amounts, but I do it by taste and look.

Avocado
Fresh crushed garlic (processed/powder just doesn't cut it) 1 clove per avocado
Diced tomato
Diced red onion
Chopped fresh cilantro
Cumin
Salt
Lime juice


Mash up the avocado and mix in the garlic. Add cumin and salt by the teaspoon or half tsp if unsure until it tastes proper. Add lime juice by the half-tsp until that tastes right. Add tomato, onion, and cilantro until it looks like the right amount. The cilantro should end up being maybe 1-2 dark green streaks per spoonful.

I wish I could be more specific, but I didn't measure any of this when I make it. Fresh guacamole is awesome stuff though. I love it.
