CULINARY STAPLE: THE AVOCADO

THE SCENARIO:
Some people are afraid of this fruit as it is often perceived as a diet gate-crasher when in reality it is high in good fats.  Not to mention it is filling and uber flavorful. It’s definitely become a staple in my kitchen. Jonesing for avocado, but don’t want to fuss or create a big mess. The answer? An easy cold salad that is as tasty as it is colorful.mpc_AVA_1_web
