Summer guacamole is a new twist on a favorite year-round snack - it has chopped watermelon, hints of fresh ginger, and lemon juice mixed in. Optionally you can add in finely minced mint, if desired. It's so refreshing and is a nice riff on the same old guacamole made with tomatoes and avocados.
Try it; I think you'll love this variation! All of the ingredients added to the avocados are to taste, so design your own sublime variation!
