When it comes to healthy eating, avocados are our best friends. (Let's get real here: they taste like butter.) It's no wonder we've got so many ways to use them. Here are seven of our favorite recipes, from the superlative classics (guacamole) to the weird-but-really-work dishes (avocados in dessert, anyone?). A happy new year, it will be.

Add dashes of Hot sauce, lime & salt. Sip Cervaza. Perfect!!! And it comes in it's own bowl!!!!

Try adding truffle salt to your avocado. This combination is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Our guacamole is simply those two ingredients. SPread it on toast, use it with chips. You will be converted.

Slice nicely ripened avocado in half. Stand near sunny window, spoon in one hand, salt shaker balanced on window sill. Lightly salt cut side surface of avocado. Slide spoon into soft flesh taking bite size pieces. Eat. Enjoy the view. Continue to eat until you can no longer see the salt. Resalt. Continue eating. Forget your promise that you would save the other half of avocado for someone else.

Sam is a trusted home cook.

I do the same but fill the seed hole with some vinegar and olive oil and eat with a spoon.

Ditto except fill the seed hole with some freshly squeezed lemon juice. Nirvana!

I love eating avocado instead of butter on bread with a dash of salt. It's something I picked up in Chile where avocado is widely popular on everything! It's my favorite thing in the world.

Yum!! Butter is the perfect description —they are JUST that.
