Food on Friday # 38 ~ Avocado

Avocado is full of good nutritional stuff, including the good kind of cholesterol, but it can also be pretty boring.  None of these recipes are in any way dull, in fact they are all super cool enough to grace any table.

First up this Friday, from Chungah Rhee at Damn Delicious I offer you this avocado potato salad.  Everyone like potato salad in summer, and this one is just a little different.  The good news, there is no mayo in this dish, but there is a lot of bacon.  Bloody good show.

Next, from Heather Christo, another great recipe, grilled romaine, red onion, avocado and bacon salad.  Remember to make far too much of this dish, so you’ll have enough leftover to take to work for lunch.

Elise Bauer at Simply recipes has this very refreshing avocado beet salad with citrus vinaigrette.  Nice appetiser or light main course.

Crab and avocado roll in lobster and crab broth.  This is a versatile and great looking dish from Petra at Food Eat Love, you could have this as a starter at a dinner party, or as a midweek dinner, or you could just make the crab and avocado roll and take that to work for lunch.  The most time consuming part of this dish is the broth, because you can’t hurry a good broth.  Magic.

Tieghan Gerard from Half Baked Harvest has this seriously pretty 20 minute dish; avocado veggie spring rolls with sweet Thai mango sauce.  This is another dish where you want to make enough for tomorrow’s lunch in the office.

This is especially for an American Girl I know, who I am certain doesn’t eat a good breakfast.  From Andrea at Cooking with a Wallflower we have a perfect summer weekend brunch, roasted garlic asparagus and bacon eggs benedict, with basil avocado cream sauce.  Yeah, the only time my friend will get to eat this is if I make it for her.  (funny thing about asparagus…)
