I like mine simple:
Get a homemade flour tortilla, mashe some avacado,sprinkle salt and voila! An avacado taco…. and a Big Red to wash it down with.
My mom always sliced one up and combined it with gratefruit sections and spooned it over cottage cheese. It was one of our favorite lunches or light suppers. I love to slice one up, add a squeeze of lime or lemon and then lightly sprinkle with salt
and fresh ground pepper.[:p]
Oh you guys!!
Wonderful stuff. Roadfood rocks.
Zaatar, that salad with grapefruit remdinds me of something I had in Hong Kong. I remember it well. I’m going to go do it!
I was worried about that with the Tempura-battered ones, but it didn’t happen. The tempura batter is so light it doesn’t cover up the avocado flavor. The frying makes the texture of the avocado even creamier. The horseradish marmalade (in very small doses!) gives it some zip.
Some Mexican restaurants do fried avocados by filling the cavity with seafood dressing and breading and frying the whole thing. Not bad but the avocado flavor gets lost in all the dressing and breading.
My new favorite is "Tempura-Fried Avocado" with a touch of horseradish marmalade. (Thank you Cask and Cleaver, Fallbrook, CA!)
This is a hit even with my "I don’t like avocado" son.
But, it is the only way he will eat them.
Avocado slices are yummy on a BLT!
A nice little first course adapted by me from Jacques Pepin’s "Fast Food My Way":
Halve, pit, peel, and large-dice the avocado. Toss it with a little lime juice to prevent darkening.
Lay a little shredded lettuce on a salad plate. Top with avocado.
In a small bowl, mix together a little ketchup and mayo, thin with a little water, add hot sauce, salt, and pepper to taste. Drizzle sauce around salad or over the avocado.
Top with fried tortilla strips, crushed tortilla chips, or even sunflower seeds, almonds — anything to add a little crunch.
Avacado- an almost perfect food- good for your skin and hair and heart! Guac is good, but I like them in a salad I learned from an aunt, while living in Florida- grapefruit supreme slices, avacado slices- placed on salad green of choice- mix sour cream with a little lime juice and a healthy dab of honey, use as a dressing and spoon over salad. A really tasty, bright and easy salad! Also love sliced avacados on fish tacos!
I cut it in half, take out the seed, pour french dressing into the crater and eat with a spoon.
My favorite is halved with crab salad in the cavity.
I had my first taste of avocado 2 years ago at the age of 50,
and I fell in love with it.
I just slice it up and eat it plain, with a sip of Dr. Pepper after
Dang it, I think I’ll slice one up now.
Split with a squeeze of lime juice![:p]
I could eat my weight in a good guacamole!
