"My husband taught me this quick recipe. I don't know where he got the idea, but it's very delicious. Avocado and balsamic vinegar are the new Hollywood couple. Step aside mayo!"

"Simple & delicious! What a yummy snack. Thanks for sharing!"
"I love my avocados this way too!"
"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!"
"This is simple and lovely. A neighbor gave us a bag full of ripe avocadoes so we have been eating them at all meals, basically. I tried this out for a quick lunch the other day and I was surprised at how great it was. Thanks for posting!"
"I did it Rita L's way and couldn't have been more pleased. The best things are simple, don't you think?"
"This is our new favorite way to serve avocados. We usually skip the oil and use a high grade basalmic vinegar. A wonderful blend of flavors!"
"this is a brilliant way to have avocado!!!, I do have a suggestion though. I always put "criss-cross" cuts in the flesh, so that the vinegar gets down to the bottom. I dont use olive oil, but I have served this as an entree, with very finely shredded (tossed in olive oil) lettuce on top :)"
"I skipped the oil as well and just used the balsamic. Very nice flavors- complimented each other well. "
"I eye appeal you can just drizzle it into the well! I did it the way directed but thought it was not eye appealing! I have Fusion Avocado! Recipe #128746 posted and never worry about it turning brown. As in this case it will be brown from the vinegar.Unless you can find white balsamic. This was good I do favor mine but still this is 5 stars! I skipped the optional oil being avocados are high in fat!"
