Guacamole is one of those dishes so many people love, but not that many people actually make at home. This has always perplexed me because it’s so easy to make: your biggest challenge when making guacamole might very well be to find perfectly ripe avocados at the store!

I started making homemade guacamole years ago and it was an instant hit amongst my friends. I’m often requested to make it and I think the reason why my version of guacamole is so popular is the over-the-top amount of citrus fruit and juice I incorporate in it. Its chunkiness is pretty irresistible too!

Store-bought guacamole is often really bland, so I’m not surprised that my guests would find my guacamole so interesting. My citrus guacamole is the very opposite of boring: it’s zesty and spicy, spiked with fresh coriander, and garnished with pieces of juicy citrus fruits. It’s packed with flavor and, best of all, it’s also good for you.

To garnish my chunky citrus guacamole, I like to combine grapefruit with any member of the orange family—blood oranges are spectacular, clementines and mandarins are especially aromatic, and good old Navel oranges are delightfully juicy. If you’re not a huge fan of grapefruit, you can of course skip it and only use oranges, but I like the complexity the flowery, slightly bitter flavor of pink grapefruit add to the mix. If you can find one, you can substitute pomelo for the grapefruit: it’s sweet and firm and super juicy. It’s just wonderful in this citrus guacamole.

This recipe makes a generous 4 cups of guacamole, which should satisfy 6 to 8 adults at happy hour. If you’re serving fewer guests, I recommend halving the quantities because guacamole doesn’t keep well—it will brown within a few hours, even with a ton of citrus involved. Continue Reading
