BC Blueberries have arrived in the stores/markets and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s one of my favourite times of the year. Growing up in BC, my mom used to grow all kinds of berries and vegetables plus had several fruit trees in our yard. Enjoying fresh produce like this every Summer was sure a great way to grow up. I’m always giddy when the fresh BC produce arrives in Alberta.
I am excited to be attending the BC Blueberries 2015 Kick Off to the Season Launch in Calgary this week. I always get inspired and want to create new recipes with blueberries when I know this event is coming up and the blueberries arriving in Calgary. This blueberry guacamole happened almost by accident. Eating blueberries along side guacamole and I decided to combine the two into one bite. I was sold, it’s seriously delicious. Even my guacamole loving kid loved the addition of blueberries. I might try fresh cherries next.
Here’s how you do it.
- 3 ripe avocados
- ½ cup fresh blueberries, halved if big
- 1 tbsp fresh jalapeno, chopped
- juice from 2 limes
- 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
- 1 tbsp green onion, sliced thin
- olive oil
- Mash avocados in a bowl.
- Mix in blueberries through green onion and a good pinch of salt.
- Drizzle with olive oil and serve with crackers, pita chips or tortillas.
