Mash a few avocados, stir in some fresh salsa and a squeeze of lemon juice and you’ve made the easiest healthy guacamole. Guacamole will turn brown if allowed to sit and is best made shortly before serving. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or as a topping for tacos, enchiladas or burritos

"If you put the avocado pit in with the dip to store it, it will not turn brown. "
