Ah, the avocado!

On the other side of the equator, it’s summer. That means tropical fruits are in season; and, yes, avocadoes apply. This is my favorite way to eat one: sliced in half with a vinaigrette where the pit was (see my post “A Simple Vinaigrette”). You can also stuff them with various salads, such as crab, shrimp, or chicken. It’s an interesting way to serve a first course, or a simple preparation for a satisfying lunch!

  1. quick way to pick an avocado by comparing its firmness to different parts of your face.
    If it feels like your cheek, then it’s overripe. If it feels like your forehead, then it’s not ripe yet. If it feels like the tip of your nose, then it’s good to go.
