Re: The lonely Avacodo...

Anger Management Mayo substitute:
dice a ripe avocado, toss it in a bowl, add a little lime juice, some Old Bay, a couple of cloves of garlic (minced, pressed, whatever, generally beat the hell out of it) some chopped fresh cilantro, attack the ingredients with a spurtle or big wooden spoon until it is creamy and whimpering.

Use it on sammiches in the place of mayo.

Took 6 posts to get to Guac!
In salads, sliced thin on sandwiches or hamburger.
Ripe Avocado takes place of mayo on BLT and other
tidbits.
Find that you have to be ready when they are.

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

Are you kidding???? Avacados are a staple on Yofy. We eat them on toast:
toast a slice of bread, rub it with garlic, spread it with mashed ripe avacado, sprinkle it with salt and pepper and dig in. mmm.

The best sandwich that I ever ate was avacado, bacon and tomato. Better than a BLT any day.

We put avacado slices in our salads, make spreads and dips with avacado as a base and yes I even have a recipe for chocolate mouse made with avacado instead of eggs.

Its a mighty fruit!

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

Growing up my mother did a salad with grapefruit wedges, avocado slices on Boston lettuce, with Marzetti's Country French dressing. I think it is the only thing we ever used the dressing for, and it just seemed to go together well. Very simple. One of the few salad's I ever ate as a child.

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

Aboard our boat, Astraea they're the great to keep around when bought green by the bag. We go through avocado feasts and famines. When they're aboard they're great for a meal of guacamole, sliced thinly and put on sandwiches, or mashed up and spread on toast with salt, pepper and lemon juice for breakfast.

We found out the hard way NOT to store them with bananas because the bananas ripen almost instantaneously, so be careful when storing your new provisions!
