I have been LOVING avocado lately. I have been putting it on everything - and a really great quick meal is just toasting some Udi's bread, a little shredded cheddar, a slice of tomato and sliced avocado on top.
I usually squeeze some fresh lemon all over the avocado once I cut it - and then I top with Janes Krazy Mixed Up Salt --- have you guys ever had that? I LOVE IT. I put on everything, absolutely everything. I have a little salt problem though, I admit.
The one thing I can't figure out with Avocado is how to add it to my sandwich or salad without it going brown. I have ended up bringing in the whole avocado and cutting it right before eating it, but I'd love to prepare it in the morning and bring. Any tips? I have tried dousing it in lemon juice and bagging it - but that doesn't work. let me know!
Also - here are a couple things I have learned about Avocados:
- When picking them at the store, get the ones that have the little "nubs" on them - know what I mean? If they are missing the nub, they will go bad. someone told me this once, I hadn't know, and ever since that little tidbit, I've never had a 'bad' avocado.
- I usually leave them out to ripen, but when they start to get ripe/soft - put them in the fridge, they'll last longer.
