    Oh my, this recipe by Sonia Uvezian from THE BOOK OF YOGURT captured my attention & imagination. I read it, closed my eyes & a pic of it flashed thru my mind - absolutely lovely! What hostess would not be proud to serve this dish as a brunch item, luncheon entree or dinner party salad? (Time does not include refrigeration time)

      If you love avocados like I do, then this is the recipe for you! We thought this was best with tortilla chips although we also enjoyed it with crackers. It is similar to a guacamole but it is a bit more elegant and maybe if you don't have someone hangin over your shoulder waiting for dinner you will be able to make it look more elegant as well. I reduced the recipe in half since it was just the two of us and used a smaller mold. I was also worried that it would stick in the mold since it was a bit intricate but it slid right out. Thanks for a great recipe Twissis!
