I want to tell you about one of my favorite summer recipes to make, my Avocado Tomato Salad. I LOVE avocados. They are so creamy! I love tomatoes too and they are considered a super food…a food that you should try to eat every day.
The tomato is not the only star in this salad — avocados have the highest content of fiber of any fruit! Yes I know we think of avocados as a vegetable, but it really is a fruit! This diamond of a fruit is awesome just by itself but mixed with other ingredients and dishes it’s just as yummy. 90% of this fruit is grown in California. The most popular avocado grown worldwide is the “ Hass ” avocado.
This variety of the avocado was named after Rudolph Hass, a mailman and a resident of California who acquired a patent on the fruit in 1935. This recipe also has great presentation to it. As you can see in the below video, the avocado is sliced in half and each half is topped with the tomato stuffing. I have made this recipe for a long time but, I have recently been reading about Peruvian cuisine and they serve stuffed avocados quite a lot. So be sure to check out other delicious fruits and vegetables that can be added as stuffing for the avocado.
Now for some more fun food facts: Did you know that a single avocado tree can yield up to 500 avocados per year? Also, once picked, it takes 7 to 10 days to ripen an avocado and the quick method is to put it in a brown bag with an apple!
This fruit is a really healthy source of fats and helps to prevent heart disease and diabetes. Hope you enjoy my recipe and I look forward to sharing my love of apples next month.
Hugs and Veggies, Remmi
