No tomatoes. Just avocados, a tad of onion, garlic, jalapeno, lime juice, cilantro and salt.

Yes, cilantro is the key!! Don't forget that... mine has avocado, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, lime or lemon juice and dash of white pepper...

We also tried red bell pepper for colour when we were out of tomatoes... it was really good, too

A little fresh orange juice adds a neat little twist. You don't need much. Maybe the juice of one or two sections.

Sounds like that would appeal to my palate.

You might not like this either, but here's what I do. Fresh avacados mashed with fork. Add minced green onions, minced garlic, salt, chopped jalapenos, about a tsp. juice from the jalapeno jar, lime juice. Let stand in frig, covered, for about three hours. If you add sugar, just a pinch at a time. It should never be sweet. MHO.

I just slice my avocado, add some fresh tomato slices, a bit of lemon juice and salt. I like the taste and texture of the avocado better when it isn't mashed or mixed with too many things.
