Whipped Avocado Salad

I dreamt up this bright Whipped Avocado Salad on our flight home from Paris. It’s filling enough to serve as a weeknight family dinner – you can add grilled chicken breast or a warm soft-boiled egg if you’re looking for something a little heartier, but it’s not necessary.  

 

Spicy Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

This is smoky and tangy salsa originally from “Tacolicious” combines roasted and fresh tomatillos with avocado and fresh jalapeno. You can dial the spice up or down based on the amount of jalapeno you include.  

 

Tomatillo Guacamole

Citrus Avocado Salad

This fresh, light salad includes a simple balsamic vinaigrette, naval orange slices, and ripe avocado. It couldn’t be easier to whip together! We recently enjoyed with spicy Mexican Chorizo and Sweet Potatoes.

We all fell in love with this recipe we discovered in Shalene Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky’s cookbook Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. To make it low-FODMAP friendly, […]

 

Stuffed Potato Skins with Guacamole

Dinner or snack? Snack or dinner? It’s hard to categorize these crispy, salty finger-foods as one or other other. On their own, perhaps they’re best as an hors d’oeuvre or afternoon snack. Pair them with steamed asparagus or a side salad, and they earn a righteous place on the dinner […]
