Because we live in The Apple Isle, I desperately wanted to cook something apple-y for my first Letters Eat. But it's not really apple recipe time, it was a warm day, so I decided to go Avocados instead and a recipe that didn't need an oven or any real cooking: what a cheat!! But very good if it's 43*C, which it is in some places today. After trailing to three shops I finally found an Avocado that was not too hard, or too soft, but still not just right. Last week perfect Avocados were everywhere.
Avocado and Tomato Salsa makes 8 bruschetta
- 1/2 red onion finely chopped
- 1 tbspn red wine vinegar
- 1 avocado, peeled and diced
- 1 ripe tomato, diced
- 1 tbspn macadamia or olive oil
- 1 small handful of rocket. I used baby spinach
- juice 1/2 lime
- salt and pepper to taste
Put the onion and vinegar in a small bowl and leave for an hour so the onion softens and sweetens.
Serve with fish or bruschetta. I made some quick quesadilla with cheese and added some sour cream and lime wedges. I am a bit disappointed with the avocado's appearance, but it still tastes fresh and spicy. I might also add some chilli because I like things a little fiery.
