4 avocados, peeled and pitted

1 large or 2 small cucumbers, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped (about 1 1/3 cups)

Juice of 2 small limes

1/2 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts

1/2 cup firmly packed chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 small garlic clove, minced

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Pinch of sea salt

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the avocados, cucumber, lime juice, scallions, and cilantro. Pulse just until mixed and chunky.

Add the olive oil, garlic, and cayenne. Season to taste with salt, if using. Process until almost smooth but with a little texture. Serve immediately or transfer to a small glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap resting directly on the surface of the guacamole. Refrigerate for up to one day. Leaving an avocado pit in the guacamole will help keep it fresh.
