Avocado Onion Salad

I'm a day late getting this posted. Life is kinda crazy for my family. My son's surgery is a week from tomorrow, and I'm not handling it the best. I want it to be over with, but mostly I don't want it to happen at all. So, while attempting to deal with those conflicting feelings, I'm also carrying a full-time job, being a mom and a wife, maintaining my blogs, cooking, photographing, trying to sleep.. One thing that has gotten pushed to the back burner in the past week is my perusing/commenting on others' blogs. Please be patient with me, and know that I am so grateful that your eyes glance at our little blog on occasion!

Now onto this simple yet delicious little recipe!

MAKE YOURSELF AN AVOCADO AND ONION SALAD

Arrange the following on a serving platter:

3 Hass avocados, thinly sliced

1/4 small red onion, very thinly sliced

Avocado Onion Salad

In a small bowl, combine:

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Final Step

Drizzle the dressing over the avocados and onions. Serve immediately to enjoy!

COOKING TIP:

  • Red Onions have purplish-red skin with white flesh tinged with red. They have a mild to sweet flavor compared the white onion. They are delicious both raw and cooked.

  • This recipe is best served immediately. But if you need to prep it in advance, I would recommend preparing it no more than 2 hours in advance and placing it in the fridge covered.

My husband and I sat in front of the tv and ate this entire plate like it was a bowl of popcorn. Except we used forks. And we had really bad breath afterward. :)

SELECTING A RIPE AVOCADO

If avocados go on sale, it’s great to pick up a handful and let them ripen at home. There are so many ways to enjoy them that they’ll never go to waste. Selecting an avocado that is ready to enjoy takes a little more knowledge, however. Try these simple tests to select your next avocado batch:

  • TEST 1 - A good test to check ripeness is to use your fingers and push gently into the avocado to see if it yields to pressure near the top where it was connected to the tree. If it gives freely and feels mushy, the avocado is past its prime. If the avocado is rock-solid and there is no give to touch, the avocado needs a few more days to ripen.

  • TEST 2 - Pop off the stem of the avocado where the avocado separated from the tree (see step 1 below for a visual). If a dark brown color is revealed, the avocado is past its prime. If it’s impossible to remove the stem nub, the avocado is not ripe enough to eat. If a green color is revealed, perfectly delicious avocado flesh is ready to be enjoyed!
