I Went to the “Friends of Kanaha” July the 4th party yesterday which in the States was what they call a pot luck party. Everyone brings a dish, any dish.
I brought my Guacamole and it was a hit! I promised the recipe to someone there, so here it is.
It takes just as long to prepare as it does to take the ingrediants out of the fridge, add them to the bowl and mash them all together.
- 2 ripe Hass Avocadoes
- 1 heaped dessert spoon of Best Mayonaisse
- 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
- 1 bunch of finely chopped chives (or a teaspoon of grated sweet onion, Maui Onion perhaps)
- 2 teaspoons of Gardinis Ceasure dressing (optional, but adds a great touch to the final flavour)
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/4 (or less) of very, VERY finely chopped Habanero chilli (to taste) for that smokey flavoured kick.
- 2 tablespoons of crumbled feta cheese for the final texture
- Add all the ingredients (except for the Feta Cheese) into a large bowl and mash with a fork or potatoe masher (even put in a blender if preferred) until creamy.
- Stir in the feta cheese at the end
- If not served immediately, store in as small a dish as possible, cover with cling film so no air can get to the surface of the mixture (lay the cling film on the mix)
- Store in the fridge or on ice until ready to serve
Serve with fingers of cut vegetables or rice or corn chips.
Tip, try not to touch the chilli with your fingers while chopping and wash the knife carefully after use.
9 oz Fresh Raspberries
3 oz Icing sugar
- Blend the Raspberries in a blender with the icing sugar
- Press through a metal sieve and chill before serving
Great for Meringues and many other desserts
