    My family is from Colombia so as a kid I ate a lot of avocado! We call it “aguacate”.

    These days my favorite food with avocado is cobb salad: grilled chicken, avocado, bacon, hard boiled eggs, lettuce, cucumber, croutons, and honey mustard dressing.

    First of all I LOVE your photos- you make everything look so lush and scrumptious! My fave avocado dish- you are going to think I am so simple- but I just scoop it out drizzle some balsamic vinegar on it and a pinch of salt- and I’m good to go!!

    We love chilled Avocado Soup! The one we make is from my Mary Hart cookbook and is so easy! Its just 3 avocados, 1 1/2 c chicken broth, 1 1/2 cup light cream, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon onion salt, 1/8 teaspoon white pepper, and 2 teaspoons lemon juice! Puree avocados with chicken broth and then mix in cream and seasonings! You should chill for at least two hours….we sometimes make the night before for our family get togethers! Add the lemon juice just before serving! It tastes so good during the summer!!!!
