LOVE Avacados!!! Great just with salt and pepper. But also good in guacamole. Here is a hint to keep the guacamolce from going brown, put the seed (pit, whatever you call it) in with the dip. Works great and you don't have to put lemon in it if you don't want to. But I like lemon pepper myself but was out of it one day and this worked great too. They also say to ripen to put in dark place or brown paper bag with an apple and that it even works after you have already cut it in half just cover with plastic wrap and place in paper bag (haven't tried the last part though.

I like to mix them with some garlic powder, diced onion, salsa (the kind that is in plastic containers, not jars that might have added sugar) for a yummy guacamole. Mash the avo with a small amount of mayo for a spread on turkey sandwiches. I also use the guacamole on a small tostada with cheese, under the broiler for a few minutes, top with shredded lettuce and ole, a nice lunch.

They are one of my favorite foods. When I discovered that like almonds and olive oil, they were full of heart healthy MUFAs I enthusiastically added them back into my diet.

I prefer the Haas, seem to me to have more flavor. Some of the larger ones I find here in Hawaii (don't know which variety they are), are very smooth and buttery, but pretty tasteless in my opinion.

I eat them on salads with lettuce and tomatoes and oil/vinegar dressing, as a side with a little lemon juice as a part of dinner, and in my vegetable stir fry for breakfast.

I just bought an Avocado. I have never eaten one before. How does one prepare it for eating? I was thinking of something simple, perhaps with minimal prep.

I love avacados, and sometimes for lunch I will just cut one open, sprinkle it with a little lemon juice, and just scoop it out of it's shell with a spoon…Darn, now I want one for breakfast! :)

Here's my favorite Avocado recipe:
2 medium ripe but not soft avocados, diced
1/4 cup non dairy sour cream (IMO)
1tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash
1/8 cup onions, finely diced
1 small roma tomato, diced

Put all prepared ingredients in bowl and combine, refrigerate 1hr, serve.
or place all in food processor or blender pulse 'til almost smooth, chill 1 hr. In this form it makes an excellent spread on sandwiches, burgers, crackers, or by itself on a piece of toast. ENJOY
P.S. Season to taste, if you want it hot!!!
