The ginger, cilantro, sake, and chili give this guacamole an authentic island flair.

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons sake or rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon Thai chili oil or Thai chili paste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash gently enough to mix, keeping avocados chunky. Serve in a bowl with chips or tortillas.
