The Simplest Most Classic Guacamole Recipe

Sure, we could go forever and a day jazzing up our guacamole (adding in charred corn! fresh goat cheese! tons of herbs! mango!) but most of the time we keep it super simple. Like a well-executed margarita, we believe good guacamole doesn’t really need anything more than really good quality avos, fresh lime juice, and a pinch of salt. 

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
