Food Monday ~ Avocados and….

Avocados and….

Avocados make a simple starter or lunchtime snack, ideal for this time of year.

Simply halve avocados lengthways, remove stone, brush flesh with lemon juice to prevent browning and top with one of the following:-

Dice a red-skinned apple and mix with shredded celery, chopped walnuts and a squeeze of orange juice.

or

Quarter cherry tomatoes and mix with finely cubed mozzarella or feta cheese and freshly chopped  basil.  Toss in olive oil and a little white wine vinegar.

or

Mix cooked peeled prawns with mayonnaise, a little grated lemon rind and a drop of lemon juice.  Season with ground black pepper.

Serve with a little lettuce and crusty bread.
