Avocado Salad


Peel and pit two ripe avocados.
Put the pulp into a food processor with the juice of half a lemon.
Process until smooth.
Place in a bowl.
Chop as many grape tomatoes as desired and put on top of avocado.
Chop fresh chives and add.
Salt as desired.

This couldn't be any easier and is simply delicious!

  2. Hip Chick, have you seen the movie, Tortilla Soup? I mention it because I just saw it for the first time, and the food, including avocados, is amazing. I've just bought it because I know I want to see it over and over. Great family story, and that food!!

  4. So this is pretty much how I make guacamole. Well, I mash the avacados by hand, but I cut up tomatos, put in a little lemon juice, some garlic salt, no chives or onions but you could, mix it all up. Guacamole. To be scooped up with tortilla chips or spooned on to taco salad or soft tacos or fajitas.

    I love avacados. The perfect food to me.

  7. Kay, I used to mash them by hand but one day I tried the food processor and never looked back. It comes out so, so smooth with none of the stringy texture I don't like. To make guacamole, I would add some salsa and spices. I haven't made it for a long time. This salad is quite a lot blander than the guacamole I've had in restaurants. I'll bet you have great places to eat it down there!

    Staci, surprisingly, I'm not a big corn chip fan. :<( (though potato chips are a whole other story!)

    Kay, it was great!

  8. Nan I just found your blog for the first time over this past weekend and I was greatly entertained reading your archives. Just want to say yours will be a constant for me from now on! By-the-way, I am a big Gladys Tabor fan also.

  9. I've just made this to take to a garden party which a request to bring along some nibbles; so I thought this would be a good thing to take with me.

  12. Have you seen the picture of the avocado I just posted on my blog? It's one of my favorite things to eat. I love it in salads, on sandwiches, on a bagel, or in guacamole. I'm just the opposite of you, though. I prefer my guacamole just barely mashed. The chunkier the better! :)

  13. Les, I haven't, but I will! Yeah, I like mine smooth so it isn't stringy. I don't like stringy at all.
    Shades of Mr Monk, methinks. :<)

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
