Storage

This salad is best enjoyed right away. If you choose to save the leftovers, you will want to store them in an airtight container for up to 2 days. The avocado will brown while it is in the fridge. 

How do you make guacamole not turn brown?

Preventing browning of avocado almost seems unavoidable at times especially once you cut it. To help prevent the avocado from browning you can pour a layer of lemon juice on it and then wrap it tightly in plastic then place it in the fridge.
