I know, I posted avocado just recently, but I just couldn't resist posting another one again...it is currently my fave fruit! :P
I never did like this fruit before, but when I had it salad-like, I was hooked! Back at my parent's house we used to eat this as a dessert (with milk and sugar) or as a drink (avocado shake), which I wasn't too fond of...and I wasn't too happy about it either since we had some trees at the farm and had an abundant supply! LOL
However, I decided to give this fruit another try...I also wanted to see if my sons would like it. The 12year-old went like "....uhm, it's ok..." and proceeded to eat the rest of his portion, while the 2year-old only managed to swallow a couple. Obviously, avocado seems to be an acquired taste in my family! ...not everyone likes it.
As for me, the moment i mixed it together with cucumber, tomatoes, fresh spring onions and my dressing (extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, dried dill, calamansi juice, and a drop of sesame oil), I was hooked! :D
ps. the shots above were taken last saturday (breakfast), when stocks were running low...no more cucumber and spring onions. lol. the dressing was the same, though. paired that off with cinnamon french toast and tea. :)
