More Herbs, Less Salt! // Cilantro Guacamole

Using herbs is a fun way to flavor your food! Herbs are typically the leaves of small plants. You can buy them fresh or dried and put them on just about anything you eat! Here are some fun facts you should know about herbs.

  • In the United States we pronounce “herbs” without the ‘h’ (so it sounds like “erbs”), but in Great Britain they pronounce the ‘h.’
  • Dill was used to crown people in ancient Rome and Greece.
  • Rosemary crowns used to be used for brides.
  • Herbs used to be used as a main source of medicine. We can still use herbs today to help with stomachaches, headaches, and more!

Today we’re going to make flavorful Cilantro Guacamole! You won’t even notice the missing salt. Let’s get started!

First, gather your ingredients. You’ll need avocados, cilantro, salsa, lime, and a red onion.

Next, mash your avocados in a bowl and dice your onions and cilantro. Then, mix all ingredients together!
