No big long story to go with this post.  Between the impending move and my beautiful son, Gage turning two tomorrow there’s a lot going on! But these stuffed avocados are just fantastic, so I had to share!

 

 

 

I got the idea and basic recipe from my friend Becky when she made them recently and her house hold raved about them. So of course (me being me) I couldn’t resist making them too!

 

 

These lovely yet simple ingredients come together to offer a rich, but still light and summer-appropriate dish.

Aren’t they pretty?!

 

Here’s all you need to make them:

4 small-medium ripe avocados

1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp lime juice (I will probably increase both the lemon and lime juice by half a tsp of so next time)

1 roma tomato- Chopped into small pieces  (I may increase this next time as well… And maybe add green chilis for a little kick!)

1 tbls (or so) fresh chopped cilantro (for garnish)

4 cherry tomatoes- cut in half (for garnish)

Directions:

Cut avocados in half and remove seeds. Scoop out most but not all of the avocado from the skin and put into a bowl.  (The layer of avocado left adds a delicious texture when eating)

Smash removed avocado with a fork and add all ingredients but cilantro and cherry tomatoes. Mix well.

Fill avocado halves with mixture and garnish with cilantro and half of a cherry tomato.

Serve immediately.

 

 

Simple and simply delicious!
