Mexican Herb Guacamole

This is one of my all time favourite side dishes, especially when you are short on time and want something both delicious and filling. It makes the perfect lunchbox, on-the-go small dish and goes well with sweet potatoes or just simply with your favourite tortilla chips.

The lemon and olive oil bring out the richness in flavour of the avocado, keeping it creamy and delicious.
