Simple and elegant. I found this on one of my Mother's recipe cards. I'm not sure if she made it up or found it in a cookbook.

This soup is very fresh and light; easy to put together. I used home made broth and port (did not have Sherry). Next time I might add a bit of broth to the avocados and lemons and let sit for a bit before adding the remaining broth to the bowls. The lemony flavour came through better at the end of the bowl. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders
