1 small tomato
2 large avocados
1 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove pressed (optional)
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt or less
Additional chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

1.  Wash tomatoes. Slice in half to remove core and seeds of tomatoes.  Cut into large chunks. Put into Manual Food Processor.

2.  Cut avocados in half length-wise. Carefully remove pit. Scoop out avocado from skin using spoon into Manual Food Processor for smoother texture.

3.  Wash and dry cilantro with paper towel. Remove leaves from larger stems. Place 2 tbsp of leaves in with tomato.
