Apparently Ernest Hemingway ate ripe avocados while in Cuba as an appetizer. He apparently would halve them and drizzle vinagrette dressing over them.

Lovely and super simple snack. I have had this a few times and have been leaving out the oil and adding black pepper. It is also good with chopped tomatoes. Yummy!

Heya CG! (waves) I made this tonight as a simple dinner and really liked it. The balsamic and EVOO brought a new taste sensation to the light tasting avocado. YUM. :)

Hello Cookgirl; Such a simple way of getting a different flavor. Thank your DH for suggesting this. I used 12 year old balsamic vinegar an grapeseed oil. Just fantastic, we really enjoy avocados. Thank you for sharing. "Uncle Bill"

Very good! I did add some Penzey's shallot salt & mignonette pepper. I would also recommend eating this delight with some crusty bread to dip in the EVOO/vinegar mix. Thanks for posting.

This was very quick, easy and tasty! The only thing I'd do differently next time would be to add some salt and pepper like I usually do. Thank you!

This is great. Antoine's in New Orleans has always served avocado halves filled with salad dressing. I like it with the plain old bottled Italian dressing in it,too. I guess there is no way you could screw up an avocado!! I have been known to eat them with a spoon, without anything in them.

YUM!!! I was looking for a good excuse to eat avocados outside a salad or sandwich and didn't want to be so uncivilized as to chomp into it like a peach... This appears to be a legitimate dish for sophisticated diners. Thanks for the delicious facade!
