Spring guacamole is a refreshing take on the classic dip, incorporating vibrant seasonal ingredients to create a lighter, more colorful version. Perfect for garden parties or as a bright addition to any meal, this recipe blends the traditional flavors of avocado with the fresh zest of spring produce.


3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted

1 small red onion, finely chopped

2 radishes, thinly sliced

½ cup of peas (fresh or thawed from frozen)

½ cup diced strawberries

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Juice of 1 lime

1 small jalapeño, seeds removed and finely chopped (optional for heat)

Salt and pepper, to taste

Zest of 1 lime (for garnish)

A few edible flowers (such as violets or
pansies) for garnish (optional)


Mash the avocados: In a large bowl, use a fork or potato masher to mash the avocados to your desired consistency. Some people prefer a chunkier guacamole, while others like it smooth. 

Mix in the flavors: Add the chopped red onion, sliced radishes, peas, diced strawberries, chopped cilantro and jalapeño (if using) to the mashed avocados. Stir gently to combine.

Add lime and season: Squeeze the juice of one lime over the mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste. The lime not only adds flavor, but also helps keep the vibrant green color of the avocados.

Garnish: Transfer the guacamole to a serving dish. Sprinkle the lime zest over the top for an extra burst of citrus flavor. If you’re using edible flowers for garnish, scatter them on top for a beautiful spring presentation.

Enjoy: Serve immediately with your favorite chips or fresh vegetable sticks. This spring guacamole also makes a fantastic topping for grilled chicken, fish or tacos.
