    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the creamy guacamole

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; quarter lengthwise. Remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Drain and rinse the beans. Halve the tomatoes. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, zest the lime. Halve the lime crosswise; squeeze the juice into a large bowl. Add the sliced green tops of the scallions, halved tomatoes, sliced cabbage, lime zest, and 2 teaspoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. In a bowl, combine the guacamole and mayonnaise; season with salt and pepper.
