i make a salad dressing by whisking ripe avocado with lemon or lime juice, and season with salt, pepper.
but my favorite is to dice up an avocado into large chunks. marinate in lime juice (one lime per avocado or more, depending on how much juice it bears) with diced jalapeno, shallot (or onion, or scallion), salt, pepper and cilantro, and serve with lettuce leaves to wrap it up.
you can also make friends with your neighbors or coworkers. i love getting care packages, or giving them, when a bumper crop comes in

I love to eat it straight from the peel with a pinch of salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon. I add it to all my sandwiches and wraps. My friend recently told me about a recipe she saw where you bake an egg in a halved avocado. I *must* try this!!

- Mash up a whole avocado with a fork, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, and add a couple drops of lemon or lime to taste [this also prevents browning if you store it in the fridge overnight]. Put them on toast or a bagel, I have it almost every morning for breakfast.
- Put slices on any type of wrap! Right now in the office, I'm having a wrap with some leftovers from dinner [taco-seasoned chicken and grilled sweet onions] and put a few slices on top. So great - also goes well with turkey w lettuce & tomato
- Cut them up into cubes and put on top of a salad. If you're in the mood, a bit of crumbled bacon would be a perfect crunchy and salty addition.
- Pretty much the key is to utilize their texture and excellent partnership with salt, and to add lime/lemon whenever possible to prevent browning if you're not going to eat it immediately.

my favorite sandwich is just local tomatoes, avocado and fresh ground pepper and sea salt, maybe a shmear of MW on a multigrain bread
just one slice though, i wanna taste the insides more than the bread
tom, that looks AWESOME!
reminds me of a warm salad i had with wilted baby spinach, oven roasted beets, toasted walnuts and gorganzola...avocados would be awesome in that!
