I have an avocado fixation this week. I want to eat lots and lots of avocados. Luckily they are in season and avocados are probably the cheapest thing in the produce section right now…at least in FL. Super buttery, ripe, NUTRITIOUS…they lower that bad cholesterol you know, in addition to containing vitamin C, vitamin E and lots of potassium (which is probably why I am craving them, my potassium has been a bit low.)
Friday night: Avocado sandwich. Saturday Night: Guacamole.
In honor of avocados…how about Avocado Gourmet – retro style:
No idea what limestone lettuce is…maybe iceberg? Anyone know? Also, don’t know what recipe the right side is…no other bits are included. Perhaps a fruit salad?
Fill avocado half with ¾ cup cooked cut shrimp. Spread mayonnaise over top; press 2 tsps. each finely chopped hard-cooked egg yolk and parsley around mayonnaise edge. Top with a shrimp. Place on a plate lined with limestone lettuce, ½ cup shredded lettuce. Garnish with ripe olives, tomato wedges. Serves 1.
