I scaled this back to use 1 avocado and it was a delicious lunch for the DM and myself. I added some finely sliced spring onion and only used about 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise and we both thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you gailanng, made for Everyday A Holiday.
This was scaled back to 1 avocado and made for a delicious lunch for 2. I added in green onion and only a small amount of the mayo. This was served on a bed of spring mix with fresh sliced tomatoes on the side. Made for ZWT7.

Where is the Sat fat coming from? Lots of other "Unexplained fats" too. Avocado has fats, but this is more than that. I was very surprised. Yummy, but only once in blue moon.
