Avocado Party In My Mouth

June 18, 2014

 This post is sponsored by Avocados From Mexico

Yep, ALL the avocados in Mexico wanted to sponsor a post on KERF!

How excited am I when I open up my avocado and find buttery green perfection?

Foodblog-2

Avocados From Mexico asked me to create a summery salad to celebrate the humble feisty avocado. From side salads to creamy blended dressings to chopped salads and the stacked salad that I created below, avocados go with everything summertime. In fact, I’m just now dreaming up an avocado and watermelon salad with some of my favorite goat feta! Luckily they are packed with good nutrition too – lots of healthy monounsaturated fats and nearly 20 nutrients.

Stacks

Here is the assembly in a nutshell. You really can do this any way you like. I found that big, wide, even slices of tomato followed by thin layers of avocado and goat cheese worked best. Sprinkle in lots of herbs, olive oil, and salt in between the layers!

Love avocado on a sandwich or chunked in a salad. I have been eating at least half an avocado every day for the last two months and I cannot believe the positive impact it has had on my energy levels and my hormones. I am at the stage of life where hormones are “sputtering”. Since adding avocado to my diet regularly, I feel like my hormones are much more stable and my hot flashes have completely disappeared. I had no idea that little green fruit could do that. :)

I think my favorite way would be in my homemade guacamole – heavy on the diced tomato, onion, cilantro and lime, plenty of sea salt, a but of garlic, and nothing spicy (I am a wimp.) I love to dip it up with fresh cucumber slices and sometimes make it into a sandwich with either some feta or sharp cheddar and lots of greens. However, I eat avocados everywhere and in any way I can get them. Avocados might be my favorite food on earth….

Smashed avocado with garlic salt & red pepper flakes … eaten with chips, spread on toast or crackers, or eaten by itself. Yum!

Avocado makes a surprisingly great base for homemade ice cream because of the natural creaminess and high fat content!

347 Katherine S June 19, 2014 at 12:32 pm

I love avocados too. Preferable smeared on toast with a fried, pastured egg on top. I am trying to purchase avocados grown in the US (preferably from my local farmer’s market) inspired by the avocado situation in Mexico…http://www.vocativ.com/underworld/crime/avocado/

Don’t want to be a Debbie Downer, but was just made aware of this situation. Worth a quick read.

Hey Kath! Usually, when I’ve had a salad like this at a restaurant (ha, I will just admit right now that I don’t cook very much, and love to eat out) some sort of vinegar is added- do you feel like it’s better without vinegar? I actually avoid bottled dressings because I don’t love vinegar, unless it’s used in very small amounts. Anyway, I’m having friends over this weekend and was thinking of making a caprese salad or something a little more elaborate like this, so I just wanted to see if you didn’t add any because you feel it tastes better without an acidic component. (or maybe you just aren’t a fan of vinegar ;) I tend to overuse lemon, as it’s my favorite acidic food.

I’m not the biggest fan of vinegar. I think it overpowers a bit. But I do like it mixed into a salad dressing.

I can never get enough avocados! Love them! I buy a few each week and put them on pretty much every sandwich and salad. If they get too ripe, I love blending them up and tossing with hot pasta- so good! My favorite breakfast of all time is toasted Ezekiel bread, smashed avocado, fried egg and red pepper flakes/sea salt. Amazing!
