Really yummy!! Oops I thought I had red onions but only Vidalia (sweet onions) were left in the cupboard so that is what I used. Not as cute but I'm sure just as tasty if not more as I don't like too spicy an onion. I used a lot less organic apple cider vinegar for religious reasons, a perfectly ripe avocado, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plus a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil. I may make this again. Made for RAMADAN TAG 2012!
- 1⁄2 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 florida avocados (about 1 pound total) or 2 Hass avocadoes, sliced (about 1 pound total)
- 1 tablespoon highest-quality extra-virgin olive oil
- salt and black pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- MARINATE THE ONION:.
- Place the onion slices and vinegar in a resealable plastic bag, press out as much air as possible, and close the bag.
- Alternatively, place the onion and vinegar in a small bowl and put a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ingredients so that the onion slices remain submerged in the vinegar.
- Allow the onion to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
- ASSEMBLE SALAD:.
- Reserve a few tablespoons of the vinegar used to marinate the onion before draining the onion slices and setting aside.
- Place the avocado slices on a serving platter and top with the red onion slices.
- Drizzle the oil and reserved red wine vinegar over the salad and season with salt and pepper to taste.
