READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by KateL

Entered for safekeeping, from 11/10/13 NY Times magazine. The measurements are rather loose, so why not sprinkle on some finely chopped red onion, as well?

This is a delicious appetizer and it makes a really nice presentation. We really enjoyed the addition of the avoocado slice and I think the red onion really adds great flavor as well. To bump up the overall flavor a bit, I added some additional garlic and a touch of cumin along with additional S & P. Made for PRMR, December, 2013.
