Grilled Avocados

Call it an avocado kick. But, lately I’ve been pretty obsessed with them (but you already know this). Packed full of nutrients and healthy fats, they’re a staple of many healthy diets. So, I decided to try something new again.

It’s been gorgeous outside here. After a crazy long, cold winter, we’ve been putting the grill to good use and spending our evenings outside. It’s a glorious thing! So, I decided to combine my newly found love of avocados with the grill. The result was amazing and about as easy as it gets! Seriously…Amazing.

Grilled Avocados

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TB lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh salsa
  • 1/4 cup shredded monterrey jack cheese

Directions:

  • Peel, pit and halve the avocado.
  • combine the olive oil and lime juice, spread over the surface area of each half.
  • Sprinkle salt all over the surface of each half.
  • Pop each piece on the grill face down for approximately 5 minutes on high. I waited until I saw grill marks.
  • Flip the pieces of avocado, fill each hole with salsa and top with cheese.
  • Close the grill cover and grill for another 5 minutes (approximately).

Enjoy hot off the grill! Suggested serving: could sprinkle tortilla chips over the top for crunch, but not necessary!
