One at a time, run a knife through each avocado, starting at the top, until you reach the pit. Continue cutting around the pit until you reach the point you started. Twist the two halves of the avocado apart. Remove the pit and discard. Scoop the flesh into the bowl. Mash coarsely with the back of a spoon or an old-fashioned potato masher.
Add the cilantro and onion, stir to combine, then taste. Season with salt (usually about a teaspoon) and lime juice. Scoop into a serving dish and garnish with more cilantro. Serves 8.
