Guacamole Salad

I made this to go alongside a pork butt Brandon smoked this weekend. I figured why not chop up some standard guac ingredients, toss in some refresher veggies like cukes and voila, I’ve made a chewable guacamole, though that title doesn’t sound quite as appetizing as guacamole salad, to me anyway. When we sat down to eat, I kept hovering over Brandon, eyeballing how many forkfuls of salad he was putting into his mouth. I said, more than once (read: nagged), “Heyyyy babeeeee, make sure to leave some so I can have it for leftovers. *Smile*”  I was kind of obsessed with this.


  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1 English cucumber, diced
  • 4 large-ish tomatillos, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • handful cilantro, chopped
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • salt


The only thing I really need to explain (probably) is how to deal with tomatillos, so here goes…

Remove the green husks. You’ll feel that the tomatillo is slightly sticky to the touch. Rinse those suckers under some warm water, then chop ’em up like the rest of the ingredients.

In a large bowl, add all ingredients together. Consume.

    Cool, we just had an imu and smoked a pork butt and a turkey. I love the smoked meat soo much, it is hard to think of eating anything else when it is around, but this sounds like it will go really well with both. Thanks!

    This was exactly how I thought a guacamole salad should be. I couldn’t find any tomatillos but used red tomatoes and was awesome. I had left overs today for lunch and I think it may have been a little bit better too…

    Thanks for the great dish!

    i traded the onions for jicama… DELISH! It gave a slight sweetness to the tartness of the tomatillo.

    Another flavorful guacamole salad variation. Love the tomatillos touch. Had a little difficulty looking for them though.

    This is one of my favorite recipes. I can eat it by itself for breakfast or with meat, or just to snack on. If you ad mango or papaya to it the flavor kicks up one more notch. Think I may be going home to make some now 🙂
