The perfect guacamole is all about balance. Since avocado is a mild fruit, too much of any one component can quickly dominate. But with just a little onion, garlic, lime juice, and salt, the results are heavenly. Guacamole is a crowd pleaser in any setting.
*Depending on the size of the garlic and how much you like raw garlic, choose one or two cloves.
** If you top the guacamole with diced tomato, remember to seed the tomato first, so that you don't end up with watery guacamole.
