Tasty Tuesday–Avocado Salad

This is my new favorite summer side dish.It pairs best with a nice (spicy!) Mexican meal, but I’ve served alongside other dishes, as well.  You can substitute two papayas for two of the avocados, which is both delicious and beautiful, not to mention healthy, (and unexpected!), and I’m guessing mangoes or guavas may work, as well. You could also serve it over your favorite salad greens, and call it lunch!

  • 4-6 avocados, peeled, halved, and pitted
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Slice the avocados lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices.

In a small bowl, add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Spoon the dressing over the avocado. Serve immediately.
