I can't remember who said it (might have been on Fark), but someone once told me that, as a child, they used to eat halved avocado with sugar sprinkled on it.

Mash an avocado and spread over toast. Dash of balsamic if you have it. Simple and delicious.
 
2014-01-30 03:40:00 PM  
It makes a good base for salad dressings and pasta sauces.

I love it in fruit smoothies.
 
2014-01-30 03:41:22 PM  
Aside from tacos? Mash up some avocado and use it instead of sour cream in your chili.

It obviously makes great dip. Sliced on a salad is always good, too.

Miracle Whip in your guacamole? You'd better believe it.

Avocado vinaigrette is pretty good.

Sliced avocado on a properly cooked steak = devine.
 
2014-01-30 03:44:52 PM  
I like to blend an avocado with pesto and lemon juice to make a creamy pesto sauce for pasta.

I like to put that on zucchini pasta with cherubs, spinach, snow peas, and white beans.

//actually, don't do it.
 
2014-01-30 03:45:35 PM  
Fry it.
 
2014-01-30 03:45:46 PM  
Has anyone ever grilled an avocado? Would it caramelize or just burn? What about fried with butter? I am making things up here.
 
2014-01-30 03:45:52 PM  
halve an avocado, put it on top of a shredded leaf lettuce bed.  fill with quinoa, top with shredded smoked chicken, drizzle with ginger vinaigrette, put that shiat in your face hole and have a mouthgasm.
 
2014-01-30 03:46:39 PM  
Honestly my favourite way to eat avocado is just to mash it up over warm toast and salt and pepper it.  I could eat it like that all day.
 
2014-01-30 03:46:41 PM  
Burritos, Guacamole, Sashimi, salads, sandwiches.

Sometimes I just half it, pop the pit and sprinkle a bit of salt on it.
 
2014-01-30 03:46:43 PM  
Also, I've been substituting mayo with it on sammiches.. And one of my favorite hearty snacks is to let sardines marinate in lemon juice, then put that on toast with mashed avocado. SO GOOD.

Add avocado to a BLT.

WIN

They are great on sandwiches. Good on turkey and swiss. A must on tortas. Hell, they even are great on crappy sandwiches like tacos.

Potato pancakes with avocado mash and eggs.  Topped with hot sauce.

I can't eat avocadoes in slice form.  I must be allergic slightly or something, because every time I do my throat feels for hours like I have something stuck in it.

By doing it and realizing its nasty, then throwing it away only to starve?

A halved avocado with a little lime juice and salt is one of my favorite snacks.

I also like to gently stir some diced avocado into my pico de gallo at the very end, it retains the quality and freshness that a good pico should have but adds a nice rich counter to the acid of the limes.

Avocado slices, dredged in flour, then milk/egg, then panko and deep fried until golden brown make an awesome stand alone appetizer (served with a sweet/spicy sauce, like pineapple or mango/habanero) or they also make an awesome filling for vegetarian tacos.

My dad is the same way. Turns out there are two types of avacado's. One is rough and one is smooth. He can eat the rough ones no problem.

My guac recipe-

4-6 avocados (depending on size)
2 diced roma tomatoes
1 diced red onion
2-3 diced jalepenos
bigass spoonful of garlic
cumin
cilantro
pinch of cayene pepper
juice of one lime (or some lemon juice works just as well)

One of my favorite things to use guacamole for is a blt wrap-
-spread layer of guacamole on your favorite kind of tortilla wrap
-lettuce
-one sliced roma tomato
-3-4 strips of bacon
-horseradish because I hate mayonaise

Turkey, avocado slices, tomato, and gouda cheese is one of my favorite sandwiches.

Another creative and fun way I use avocados is by halving them and rubbing them on my nipples while dancing to Salam Aleikoum by Hakim in front of a roaring fire.

That's very interesting.

Does one tend to be more common in making guac than others?  Because, strangely, I have no problem with guac.

Ewww, sure it wasn't cantaloupe?

Maybe I'll have a bacon guacamole sandwich for dinner. Sounds good.

Rough ones are used for Guac. Smooth ones are too waterry.

Haas avocados are very dark green, almost black, and have a rough exterior. The other kind are more bright green, shiny and smooth. Haas are waaay better imho.

I use them to construct the ovaries on my meticulously sculpted Vegetable Lover.

I defile her and then devour her.  Saves me a fortune on date money and salad dressings.

I got the recipe from him! It's seriously the most amazing snack.


Also...

Avocado, cherubs, mozzarella, Olive oil, balsamic, and fresh basil makes a great snack.

Fried wonton, mashed avocado, smoked salmon, sriracha lime creme fresh, and balsamic.

I should eat avocado something for dinner. My neighbor gave me 5 off her tree.

Avocado also makes a really good smoothie when blended with a milk, yogurt and honey, and also pairs really well with banana.

Sweet avocado preparations might sound odd, but it actually works really well.

That's the missing variable, then.  Thanks!

Avocados are gross.
I've lived in California all my life.
They're everywhere.
I try them periodically to see if my tastes have changed.
Avocados are gross.
