Recipe

Avocados are full of heart-protective monounsaturates. Their sweet, creamy flavor is tempered here by the herbs and spices to make a great appetizer or party food.

Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • Juice of ½-1 lime
  • 1 chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • Pinch of ground cumin
  • Pinch of ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon chile oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper

Directions

1 Mash the avocado with the back of a fork, but do not make it too smooth. Fold in all the other ingredients and season to taste.

2 Serve with crostini or corn chips.
