A Recipe for Today

Edgar's “Guacamole” * 
(My Mediterranean version or an Avocado dip)
2 ripe avocados
⅓ cup minced green onions, including the green part (about 3 pc.)
2 garlic cloves, squashed
2 tsp. ground cumin
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. white pepper
2 Tbsp. lemon juice 
In a bowl mash the avocado pulp coarsely. Add the minced green onions and mix a bit. Add the garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, and lemon juice and combine well the mixture without making it too smooth. Serve with Doritos, pita, or crackers.  
* My Mexican-American friends told me that a genuine guacamole should not have cumin. They are right and, for this reason, I prefer calling this recipe a Mediterranean version of guacamole. De acuerdo, amigos?
