Pico de Guacamole Recipe – Easy, Delicious, And Savory

Sharing is Caring! ❤️

I’m always looking for great recipes for avocados. I’ve found one that scored a home run!  This recipe is a slam-dunk for sure.

All these sports references yikes! Well, that’s because it’s so darn good, your mouth will be watering while you are preparing it.

You can either serve it alone or as a side dish. We had it paired with steak last night and wow – try taking a huge dollop and smothering it on chicken too.

Either way, it’s sure to please. It’s light, savory, yet packed with flavor, and it’s a twist on the usual guac recipes you’ll see out there. I modified this a tad from the original recipe to suit our liking – the beauty of this recipe is you can easily do that.

Give it a try to let me know what your favorite ingredients are to add to this already perfect blend of veggies. 

Here are some pics to help walk you through the process – have fun and enjoy it! 

Pico de Guacamole Recipe - Easy, Delicious, And Savory

Pico de Guacamole Recipe


  • 4 tomatoes husked, thoroughly rinsed, diced
  • 1 tart green apple such as Granny Smith (about 1/2 pound), rinsed, diced - you can use any apple you have handy
  • 2 celery sticks, thoroughly rinsed, cleaned off strings, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 to 2 jalapeño or serrano chiles, or to taste, (optional - I left this out)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, leaves and upper part of stems
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher or coarse sea salt, or to taste
  • 3 ripe Mexican avocados, halved, pitted, meat scooped out and diced


In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except the avocados and mix well.

When it is all thoroughly combined, incorporate the avocados and gently mix.

Serve immediately or you may cover and chill until ready to serve.

I always like to skin the celery – this way you don’t get those strings.

  1. Now this is my kind of appetizer! I am such a sucker for avocado, I can’t wait to give this one a try. I will have to replace the cilantro with parsley, I just don’t care for it personally.

  2. Now this is something I’ve definitely got to try. I love avocados, therefore I love guacamole too.

    But guacamole with apples? That’s definitely new! I like that the extra celery and apples add fibre – winner in my books.

  3. Hi Elle, That’s why I liked best about this recipe – the apples. They make a huge difference in the flavor for sure. This is recipe we make weekly now. Love it as a side dish too. Thanks much for stopping by and hope to see you again soon! Have a great week ahead!

  4. I love avocado too! Sure, you can just replace the cilantro with parsley for sure. The thing I love about this recipe is you can really add any spice to it you prefer and still tastes amazing. Hope you get to make it and like it!

  5. I also think we will like this with the apples plus we love Avacados. The bread you spread it on with the steak looks soo delicous.
