Guacamole is a great dip, salad dressing, or topping for meats, poultry, seafood, or as a topper on potatoes.
1 avocado, washed, peeled, pitted and mashed

1/4 tsp. ground cumin, optional
1. Mix avocado and lemon juice.
2. Stir in salsa to taste.
3. Add cumin if desired.
4. Store in covered container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Makes 4 servings.
