Re: The lonely Avacodo...

I try to eat one a day. After cutting in half and hard slicing the knife into the pit for ez removal, i drizzle a touch of olive oil, topped with my homemade seasoning that has an old bay base.

I also love to fill the "pit hole" with prawns and "thousand island sauce" (in my case ketchup, mayo, cayenne, dash of tabasco). Simple and delicious starter!

Slice up and put on the top of salads.

And as others have said, on toast, Guac (of course).

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

I posted this before I think.

Fast, healthy, great tasting, easy (even under sail);

Buy a tub of "fresh" pre-made salsa from the produce section. Chop up an fresh avocado or three and mix it up. Makes a huge bowl of Guacamole.

Only mix enough for each sitting and it will taste better.

Yes, it's better to do it from scratch. But this way there is very little clean up and if you are sailing away for the weekend simply pack a couple of tubs and a half dozen Hass avocados, you are set for the weekend.

Great on bagels in the morning

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

Reporting back! LOL.. I made a simple tomato, cucumber, and avacodo salad. It's good! I did try some pieces "straight" eh.. it's ok. kind of buttery nuty flavored. I like it! won't say I love it though. they's not cheap for sure.

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

They very in price a lot, depending on time of year, and also location. I find that ethnic markets tend to have them much cheaper, and often higher quality. I prefer the larger "Florida" avocados, it has firmer texture though it is not as good in guacamole. When you have them around you will find endless uses. They make a great garnish for soups, and awesome on just about any sandwich.

Ripe avocado whipped up with a little lemon juice and salt makes an excellent substitute for Mayo on sandwiches, particularly Tuna!

That's a nice contrast in colors and textures. I like a little crunch in the salad, I think jicama could also be a good addition to your mix..you can dice it or shred it like cabbage.

That sounds really good!

Avacados are the best. They're typically firm up this way in the winter so I'll toss them in a paper bag & leave them on the counter for a couple of days.

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

Definitely read this yesterday, went to the store and got 2 avocados, made a carne asade burrito with avocado and hot sauce last night. One more left for when I get home today.

The most common complaint I hear is the texture of eating it. Secondly is the short shelf-life. Other than that I could never get sick of them.
