Avocado is a food that I didn’t used to really care for before marriage. My husband, however, really enjoyed them. It took me what seems like forever to even be able to stomach guacamole. It wasn’t really the taste that got to me – it was the color, and texture. Something about it just struck me as – well, nasty.
Time went on, and I started making guacamole for the Mister here at home. Since I made it myself, I had to taste it. After all, what kind of cook would I be if I didn’t taste my own food? Well, I would be a lot thinner I presume….
Turns out, I liked guacamole, and I didn’t even have to add food coloring to it to make it a more appetizing color. (Purple guacamole anyone?) Over the years, I have done more & more things with avocados. It is just one of the many things that my husband has swayed my vote on. He says sardines are next on that list, but I have to disagree with that one. (Sorry babe, but EW!)
This simple Avocado & Onion Salad is among my favorite.
- 3 Avocados
- 1 large sweet onion, or the equivalent (I used 2 small)
- the juice of one lemon
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup coarse ground brown mustard
- 1 heaping tablespoon of honey
Thinly slice the avocados & onion, and place in a bowl.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, coarse ground brown mustard, & honey. Pour on top of the avocados & onion, and gently toss to combine.
