This is such a nice and refreshing appetizer, yet very simple to make. It looks beautiful arranged on a platter, and is the perfect starter at a dinner party. If you want to be more casual and serve the guacamole on its own with organic corn chips, that works too!Avocados are so good for you. They are super alkaline forming, and contain a variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals. The fat in avocados are considered "healthy fats" so do not hesitate to eat them. They truly are a gem!
ENDIVES WITH PINEAPPLE GUACAMOLE
4 heads of endives
4 ripe avocados, seeded and peeled
2 garlic cloves, chopped small
2 tablespoons of red onions, chopped small
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped small
1/3 cup of cucumber, diced very small
1/2 cup of pineapple, skin removed, cored, and diced very small
1/4 cup of cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon of lime juice
1 teaspoon of cumin powder
1/4 teaspoon of chili powder
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Place the avocados in a bowl and mash with a fork.
Mix in the rest of the ingredients, except the endives, until well blended.
Trim the ends off the endives, and arrange the individual leaves equally in 4 separate platters.
Add a little bit of the guacamole to each leaf.
If you would like them spicy, add a drop of your favorite hot sauce on top of each stuffed leaf.
This will make 4 appetizer servings
