  • ok take a "mushy" one cut the long way around with a knife ---wist open with your hand squeeze some lime onto it and eat it with a spoon... soooo good! dont try it without the lime-- it's like tequila you need training wheels LOL

  • Sliced on a turkey sandwich, cubed in a salad. Spread on crackers. It actually has a very mild taste, it has a smooth creamy texture.

  • You can try it on sandwiches or salads. I love avocado, and it's funny that you posted this, because I just used two avocados to make guacamole, lol.

  • I use quacamole on my sandwiches instead of mayo but I saw today on tv that you can eat slices of avacado like an apple. The chef just cut it in slices and peeled it and put it on a plate to eat as is.

  • you don't have to really "cook" it. Just find a ripe one and slice it open. Add some salt or lime and enjoy! Make sure it's ripe though cuz if it's not...yucky.

  • BLAT sandwiches- bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato. or this one is adventurous but just delicious, at least my family loves it- cut in half a nice ripe but still a little firm avocado. in a bowl mix (this sounds very strange but so wonderful) red wine vinegar, yellow mustard, a can of drained tiny shrimp, mashed garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper. pour over the avocado and eat!!!!

  • My favorite way to have it is sliced and then cut into bite size pieces then tossed with pasta and a light butter or olive oil sauce right before serving, put a salmon steak on top and drizzle with lime juice. So yummy and so good for you.

  • My favorite way to eat avocado is mashed on a piece of whole grain toast, with sliced tomato and a sprinkle of sea salt. I also make a healthy pudding; guacamole, avocado salad (great with quesadillas and black bean soup). I have an awesome recipe called southwest falafel; it is essentially bean cakes with avocado sauce (cheap, healthy, fabulous!!!)

    Send me a message offlist if you would like some recipes.
