Best thing ever.
If you have access to fresh, good quality avocados and fresh lemons, this is an amazing combination. Of course, I really like avocados-in salad, in guac, as a soup garnish, in salad with tomatoes.
But this simple little dish will transform your life. Or at least the appreciation of the little things in such life. Here’s how. Serves two for a reasonable lunch. Serves one very hungry person. Takes all of five minutes tops.
1 ripe avocado
1/2-1 fresh lemon
pinch of salt
pinch of red pepper
Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Twist apart the halves.
Remove the pit. Leaving the skin on, score each half of the avocado fruit into cubes . Using a spoon, scoop the avocado flesh into a smallish bowl. Repeat with other half.
Using a fork mash up the avocado a little. Add in the lemon juice, salt, and red pepper. Take the fork and mash up the avocado until it is mostly smooth.
Toast two slices of good Italian or French bread. Spread one half of the mixture on each toasted slice. You will think you have died and gone to heaven.
