We don’t generally celebrate Cinco de Mayo which is this on May 5th; however, who could pass up a good guacamole? I know we can’t. In fact, guacamole has become one of our favorite weekend snacks. So when I purchased too many avocados on my last shopping trip, I had to use them up before they went bad.

I combined all of the same ingredients I’d use to make my guacamole: avocados, tomatoes, red onion, fresh cilantro, jalepeno peppers and lime juice; however, I also added cooked farro to make this Guacamole Farro Salad.

This Guacamole Farro Salad was very filling, but refreshingly light and we ate it for lunch on it’s own, but it would make a tasty side dish to go with your main meal as well. ~Enjoy!

    I love a good guac.

    And that Mexian Beer Cheese Soup looks heavenly.

    We don’t normally celebrate Cinco de Mayo, either. And it’s hard to believe it’s already May 5 around the corner.

    I’m not much for Cinco de Mayo, but we are preloading the adult beverages in anticipation of my spouse’s departure, so why not margaritas?
    I think you brilliantly used up an excess of avocados, Carrie!
