I remember being slightly repulsed by avocados as a child, although part of me wonders if that's only because we ate them so often. (Like most children, anything I was 'forced' to eat turned into something I rebelled against eating). A huge shift occurred in me when I went off to college, however, and now the great green fruit (yep, it's a fruit!) holds a permanent place in my top five favorite foods. I regularly eat avocados in salads, in smoothies, with eggs, on toast, in burritos and wraps, and by themselves. I am fairly certain that guacamole is the best recipe invention of all time. And in the summertime, the avocado is queen in my house. I've been looking up a whole lot of recipes that incorporate avocados to use in our summer meals lately, so for this edition of 10 Great, I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds with you. I've tried a couple of these already, and can't wait to make more of them in the coming weeks.
Are you an avocado fan too? If you have a favorite avocado recipe/meal/treat, I'd love to hear it.
