Mashing into a paste improves both the flavour and texture. It is great for kids who do not like to find chunks of raw onion. If serving older children/adults, adding a pinch of salt will help to mash/grind into a paste easier.
You can mash chunky or smooth depending on your family preferences. I usually leave some texture to the avocado.
We like 1/2 a lime worth of juice but this is personal preference. Start with 1/4 lime, to begin with, and add more if you like. Use fresh juice, bottled does not give the same taste.
Now my kids are older I do add a little salt to bring out the flavour. Do not add salt if making for a baby/ young child.
