You say Avocado, I say Aquacate...

"Ensalada de Aquacate"

(the "old Cuban" version)

While papa is the HEAD CHEF around this house, I seem to be the salad maker and baker. Since papa's been so busy, I've been forced to use my limited culinary skills lately. Here is another one of those very quick and easy salads that is as colorful and as healthy as you can get. Avocados is the main food in this cool, refreshing side dish!

The salad pictured has an extra ingridient and you are welcomed to try it, but papa wasn't too impressed with the surprise. Not that he didn't like it, he just said he much rather the "old Cuban" version. And it is, the old stand-by with the extra surprise ingridient at the end....

The ingridients and directions
(it's THAT easy!)

1 medium ripe (to your liking) avocado
1 medium yellow onion
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil and vinegar to taste

Stir and serve chilled

The extra ingridient
(it was worth the try!)

1/2 small green bell pepper

Optional ingridients

chopped romaine lettuce
sliced tomatoe
