Todayâ€™s recipe comes from my pal, Holly Anderson. Holly was the one who asked me to be a part of the original Ladies(â€¦) after bonding in the Deadspin/Defamer super collider and weâ€™ve been friends ever since. These days you can find Holly running the big show over at SIâ€™s The Campus Union where you can find her covering college football in a smart, funny and irreverent way that only she brings to the conversation (because college football needs more drama club stories).
It came to no surprise to me that Hollyâ€™s guacamole would be the recipe submitted that was closest to my own. We share similar tastes in men, Pro Bowls, music and movies; of course our guacamole would be spiritual avocado cousins. What makes Hollyâ€™s guacamole special is the extra kick of lime zest, an addition thatâ€™s going to find a permanent home in my own guacamole from now on. The avocado comes alive in this recipe and isnâ€™t buried behind heat. A puristâ€™s delight.
