You like guacamole? Looking for another fun way to use your salt block? If you aren't even sure what I'm talking about – read this post all about the use and care of salt blocks first.
Have you tried Salt Block Guac?
As much as that sounds like a really great album, smashing avocados on a salt block is what we are talking about! Seedy chips and hot sauce make excellent accompaniments to the guacamole.
The recipe couldn't be any simpler. Cut a lime in half. Then cut an avocado in half. Take half the lime and squeeze some of the juice onto your salt block. Take the lime and spread it around. Isn't that fun?
Now scoop out the avocado onto the limey salt block and mash it with a fork.
Grab your chips, carrots, celery, bell pepper strips and whatever else you can find with crunch and start scooping up your guac – fast!
What's the hurry?
Well, if you're not going to eat it in a hurry, it could get too salty! That's why you need to scoop it off the salt block into a separate dish. Don't over smash or spread it around too long or it could get too salty. Alternatively, taste it as you go.
If you like a little something extra, try a chopped up tomato, jalapeño, crispy bacon or sun-dried tomato! Want to add some crunch and more nutrients? Sprinkle on some sunflower seeds.
