Five Good Reasons to Eat Avocados
Jan 23rd, 2014
Best to Buy
Look for ripe avocados (unripe are hard to the touch) that feel heavy for their size and are free of bruises and dark, sunken spots.
Prep & Store
Slice fruit vertically around the pit and twist to break in two. With a sharp motion, chop a knife 1/4-inch (2 mm) deep into the pit and twist to remove. Scoop out the flesh or score lengthways or crossways to create strips or cubes.
Quick & Easy Recipe
Mix mashed avocado, lime juice, tomatoes, and hot peppers—for an extra kick add a touch of garlic and hot sauce.
