While burgers, fruit skewers, and the latest and greatest green salad are all fine and good, it's nice to have new ideas and inspiration for what to do for your next outdoor gathering. Thankfully, a new idea has arrived!
In the August 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living, the Avocado Bar is introduced. Why hadn't we thought of this before?! The gist of the avocado bar is this: Lay out nice, ripe avocado halves and bowls of different toppings and guests can mix and mingle and put together their own fresh creations. We're inspired by the endless options, ranging from Mexican fillings like black beans, chopped tomato and shredded cheese to interesting combinations like edamame and toasted coconut (pictured).
Topping Ideas For Your Avocado Bar:
• Shredded cheddar or cojita cheese
• Toasted pepita seeds or walnuts
• Black or pinto beans
• Ground beef or pulled pork
• Chopped papaya and mango
• Salsa Fresca, sour cream
• Shredded lettuce, kale, or spinach
