Springtime Strawberry Guacamole

Spring produce is all about bright flavors — cheery, sweet strawberries, garlicky ramps and scapes, earthy asparagus. In celebration, we’ve been experimenting with all kinds of fresh takes on old standbys, giving them a boost of color and flavor with the bounty spring provides. This strawberry guac is the perfect way to usher in May: it’s at once sweet and spicy, familiar and unexpected.

Avocados are a goldmine of healthy benefits. They’re packed with monounsaturated fat (the good fat!), plus folate, B6, and more potassium than a banana. If you’re the industrious type, you can save the pit and sprout your own avocado tree!

Whether you’re planning a Cinco de Mayo fiesta or switching up your BBQ chips-and-dip game, let the season’s best flavors inspire something a little different!

    This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try this – I’m always looking for ways to use as many strawberries as possible when they’re at peak ripeness!
