Again, I'm not good about thinking outside the box. But when I see a different twist on a traditional twist, I'm gonna try it. Case-in-point: Guacamole. Instead of using lime as the acid, you use balsamic. And a bit of kosher or sea salt. Nothing else. Who'd a thunk it?
This is the easiest guac ever. You could still doll it up with a bit of minced onion, fresh garlic, some small diced tomato and/or cilantro. But it's not necessary. So if you're in a hurry for a quick appetizer and just happen to have a ripe avocado on hand, you're set.
kosher or sea salt
1-2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Peel avocado and remove seed. Smash with a fork to desired consistency. Add salt and vinegar to taste. Serve with tortilla chips.
