Off The Counter: 5 Favorite Avocado Recipes

My love for avocados developed later in life.  As I child, I used to watch in horror as my mother dressed them in olive oil, salt and pepper and then savored them slowly.  She was always confident that I would become an avocado lover just like her.  Since our move to California, they've become a regular 'off the counter'staple, either served as my Mom would eat them, mashed into fresh guacamole, or used in recipes like the ones above.

I love living in avocado country!
