I didn't do this recipe justice, since I left out 2 of the 5 ingredients (husband is allergic to garlic and I don't like cilantro). So basically this was salted avocado with lemon juice. Can't get much simpler than that!

There's no credible way to lighten guac since the main ingredient--avocado--is high in fat. But it's heart-healthy.
