Avocado Salad – I would like to obtain an avocado in my garden, but I’m not sure it would grant me so many avocados. Or rather I’m sure it would not. Avocados are a grateful fruit, and I am also in favor of it.
Avocado is not really enormously, but it is “bold” in taste, and it is good to soak the flavor to it from citrus fruits, spices, marinades or smoked taste.
One can subsequently say that avocados name may not like is something you associate with food. Avocado comes from ahuacatl, the native American language Nahuatl means testicle…
But the avocado is vigorous. It is filled with Vitamin B, E and K and is very rich in unsaturated fatty acids (the healthy fatty acids).
You will need it for avocado salad for four servings.

- 2 tsp. liquid honey
- 4 avocados

- Pea shoots, watercress or other freshly chopped vegetables
- Salt and pepper
How to prepare avocado salad

- Season with salt and pepper.
- Split the avocados into half and remove the stone / kernel and peel
- Gently make cuts in the avocado flesh in a cross-hatch pattern, careful not to break through the avocado peel. Then use a spoon to easily scoop out the avocado pieces.
- Cut the spring onions finely into strips
- Mix the avocados, finely chopped onions, edamame beans and freshly chopped green vegetables.

Wine for avocado
If you want to serve wine, a rich, puffed white wine on the Chardonnay grape will be good.
How to Cut and Diced an Avocado
- Cut the avocado in half
Using a sharp chef’s knife, slice through the avocado lengthwise until you feel the knife hit the pit. Then rotate the avocado, keeping the knife steady, to make a cut all around the pit. Twist the two halves apart.
Tip: It’s safest to do this on a cutting board.
Tip: To ripen a hard avocado, store it in a brown paper bag.
- Remove the pit
Aim your knife at the pit and whack into it, using enough force that the knife won’t slip. Twist the knife to pull out the pit.
Tip: Flick pit off the knife with your thumb or the side of a bowl.
- If dicing, score the flesh of the avocado without piercing the skin
Use your knife’s tip to score avocado flesh, making squares, then scoop it out with a spoon.
- If slicing, scoop out and slice
For neat slices, use your spoon to loosen skin all the way around, and scoop out the flesh whole. Place flat side down on cutting board and slice using the tip of your knife.
