Today: A new way to eat avocados, with only a spoon and some leftover dressing.
I recently made this very good citrus salad for lunch, and finished off the last bits of an avocado on the side. I cupped the partially-demolished avocado half in my hand, spooning a surplus of shallot vinaigrette into the vessel as you would a mignonette onto an oyster. Why don't I do this more often, I thought. And why don't you?
Here you go: Halve an avocado. Spoon some shallot-y vinaigrette into its belly button. Eat with a spoon. Add more dressing as necessary, spooning and spooning, until you are left with a weightless black shell of avocado skin.
Tell us: How do you avocado?
