1 lemon or lime

1 dash olive oil optional

2 avocados

2 jalapenos add chiles to taste

1 large ripe tomato

garlic/salt etc.

4 inches green pepper

2 large fresh basil leaves

Directions

I didn't expect to taste the basil but it really shone through very strongly. I put this down to its strong affinity to tomato. Also I was concerned the pepper would spoil the other flavour but its aroma blended in to produced a slightly sweeter aftertaste.

"I've made this twice (doubled the recipe both times) - definitely a keeper and no comparison to store-bought. My only tweaks: I added a half-tablespoon of garlic salt, crushed the fennel seeds (mortar and pestle) and used a hand-blender when it was done to make it smooth. The leftovers keep really well in the freezer." - cyarcher3
