Summer Garden Guacamole


It’s no surprise that summer is quickly winding down and pretty soon people will be looking to enjoy fall with a variety of pumpkin spiced food and drinks. But that day will come, for now, we still have time left for delicious summer recipes to enjoy. Today we will be going over how to make something that can be enjoyed any time of the year but is especially delicious in the summer. We are talking about guacamole!

To make this recipe a bit more “summery” we will be adding a variety of ingredients to the guacamole to really give it some extra flavor! This summer garden guacamole recipe is brought to you by Half Baked Harvest.


First, the guacamole:

3 large ripe organic avocados – These need to be seeded and peeled

1 large juiced lime

½ teaspoon of ground cumin

1 large jalapeno seeded and chopped (if you want a little heat)

¼ cup of fresh cilantro chopped (for that added freshness)

¼ cup of fresh basil chopped

Salt (how ever much you like to reach the perfect taste)



Place the avocados in a mixing bowl and squeeze the lime juice over them so they are coated well.

Add in your cumin.

Take a fork and lightly mash the avocados to your preferred chunkiness.

Add in the jalapeno, cilantro, basil, and a pinch of salt (add more salt if needed)


Now, on to the ingredients that truly make this a delicious snack!

You will need:

1 cup of cherry tomatoes cut in halves

1 ear of grilled corn kernels removed from the cob

1 peach nectarine or plum chopped up

½ cup of fresh blueberries or blackberries

4 cherries chopped in half and pitted

Fresh basil and chopped chives

½ cup of toasted pepitas

2 tablespoons of sesame seeds

4 ounces of crumbled goat cheese

And of course, salty tortilla chips for scooping


Once you have your guacamole in a wide bowl, go ahead and top it off with all of the extra ingredients and sprinkle goat cheese over the top. Now you are ready to enjoy!
