Walnut Guacamole
“Exquisite and Elegant"

This guacamole version can be the favorite of those who are fans of the dried fruits as it is not only prepared with walnuts... also a few almonds are used to accentuate the dried flavors.

And like all the guacamoles also many more ingredients are used to make a feast of flavors.

Although this guacamole
has the particularity of providing contrasting textures as the avocado is smooth like butter while the nuts and the almonds are hard, rough and crispy. You will love this game of textures!

The walnut guacamole is an exquisite snack accompanied of some tasty
fried tortilla chips or over a toast accompanying a tuna salad.
