The grocery stores now sell the tubes of chopped herbs.  What a time saver!  This time of year, when my herb garden is no longer an option, it is a great alternative.  Use fresh lime and when covering the dip, press the plastic wrap lightly on top to keep out the air.  Otherwise, it will turn a darker color on top.

4 avocados
2 medium tomatoes
1 lime, juiced
½ onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 - 2 Tbsp. Cilantro, minced
1 jalapeno, minced

Remove skin and pits from avocados. Dice tomatoes, removing some of the pulp if the tomatoes are not “meaty”. In large bowl, place all ingredients. With a large wire whisk, smash until you have the desired consistency. Season with salt. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
