Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Just Another Meatless Monday Avocado Salad Boats


Just Another Meatless Monday Avocado Salad Boats

Hey What's For Dinner

We've been chugging along on the bedroom redo for the last 40 hours straight, ok LIE we did sleep for about 5 hours, on our bed in the living room. I am so tired I am shaking. Our entire house is a complete mess. It's funny how one bedroom can create a mess much bigger than itself. And I still had to cook, sort of. The only room in our house that maintained even a semblance of balance and cleanliness was the kitchen. I bought a big bag of fresh bagels, some lunch meats and for the most part we ate bagel sandwiches twice a day and had a regular-ish dinner. It worked well until I realized I didn't have chocolate in the house, HA! 

I wasn't particularly vegetarian too much this week so I thought I'd share the avocado salad from last week. Yum. And guess who has avocados again this week, thanks Full Circle.

Avocado Salad Boats
2 ripe avocados
1 ripe tomato
1/4 of a cucumber
1 Tablespoon of chopped cilantro
4 Tablespoons crispy fried onions-I used Lars Own, you could use French's

cut the avocados in half and remove the pit
use a spoon to scoop out the flesh leaving the shells intact
cut the avocado in to bite size pieces, place in a bowl and set aside
wash the tomato, remove the stem end and cut in to bite size pieces
wash the cucumber and finely chop
toss the tomato, cuke and cilantro in with the avocado
put back into the avocado shells
top each 1/2 with 1 Tablespoon of crispy onions

Peace and Love--

  5. I was never a big fan of avocados until recently. This recipe sounds delicious!! I think the crispy fried onions put them over the top!
