Fresh Grape n’ Pear Gauacamole

Who would have ever thought of tossing in a few fresh red grapes into a guacamole recipe?  Leave it to me, of course, as I’m always experimenting with new fruits, veggies and herbs for a fun spin on the classic ol’ guac.  Here is a tasty ‘summer’ inspired guacamole recipe that has a hint of natural sweetness from farm-fresh grapes n’ pears but rounds out well with a savory bite.  Enjoy this guacamole atop gluten-free crackers, spread onto a sandwich in lieu of mayonnaise, as a dip with gluten-free chips or topped onto a salad as a tasty dressing.

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 15 red seedless grapes, halved
  • 2 ripe pears, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 5 blanched almonds
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 2 Heirloom tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tsp. white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. agave nectar
  • Pinch of sea salt and freshly ground white pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Greek plain yogurt, for topping
  • Lime zest, for topping

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor; blend until desired consistency.
  2. Transfer to serving dishes.  Serve chilled with a dollop of Greek plain yogurt and a sprinkle of lime zest on top.
  3. Enjoy!
