Guacamole With Tomatoes and Bell Peppers

For French Fridays with Dorie, I waited a day late to make this recipe so I could share it with friends. Every year we go to this event which includes a picnic dinner and fireworks.  We also celebrate our dear friend’s birthday which this year happens to be on the event so a cake was in order for dessert.

Dorie’s recipe for guacamole included red bell pepper, lime, red onion, jalapeno, cherry tomatoes, cilantro and of course avocado.  I didn’t have any cilantro so I just left it out.

My husband and son do not like guacamole so my husband made salsa.  There were a few jokes while making our separate appetizers.  We got thumbs up for the guacamole recipe.  I really liked the addition of the lime zest.  I read fellow Dorista’s reviews and used less lime juice.

To finish our meal off I made Big Bill’s Carrot Cake from Dorie’s Baking From My Home To Yours. It was delicious but definitely not a light cake with 3 layers and cream cheese frosting.

No matter where you are in the world, I hope you enjoy some fireworks this summer.
