My favorite avocado go-to is...

Avocado & tomato salad, with red onion, & lime or vinaigrette dressing. (You can add fresh mozzarella balls to the mix, if you like.)

Avocado & crab is another favorite:

Avocado stuffed w/ crab salad & fresh lime juice

Avocado and crab or salmon cocktail

Avocado bruschetta or crostini - diced avos, halved cherry or grape tomatoes, red onion, fresh herbs, lime juice.

Avocado BLTs

Avocado crab cakes

Avocado crab dip

Pico de gallo

Avocado & strawberry salsa over grilled fish

We have a tree in our back yard. I use them in Mexican stuff, SW stuff, Cuban stuff and there is a Thai curry that has slightly cooked avocado in it.

An easy party appetizer I like is, crab and avocado timbales. Change the ingredients to suit your taste.

Crab Avocado Timbale First Course Appetizer

I love them plain, with a dash of pepper and salt, sliced and added to ANY sandwich, with cottage cheese, with shrimp, scallops, steak, chicken ... hmmmm .. guess I love them most any way.

They are my 2nd guilty indulgence .. first being chocolate of course !
Lucky you! My whole family loves them
Nothing to feel guilty about, avo's are a healthy treat!

I like them almost every way that I've ever had them, save one: avocado ice cream. That recipe didn't really work out so well.

I thought I had lost mine when hurricane Wilma knocked it down. The roots were pretty exposed. I started cutting away branches, as it had fallen onto the patio and it sprang almost back to its original position as the weight got removed. A few stout branches grew on the opposite side and we were back in business.
