I wish there was some sort of Willy Wonka-style candy factory that produced savory avocado delights instead of candy. In addition to that statement making me sound stone-cold craaaazy, the reality of that sort of factory would be absolutely AMAZING! Don’t lie. You want in.
I’d totally Veruca Salt my way all up in there. No shame.
Since there is no fantasy-land avocado factory I’ve settled for roasting a big ol’ bunch of cherry tomatoes, and tossing them (along with just a little too much feta) into a batch of creamy do-no-wrong guacamole.
Don’t roasted cherry tomatoes look a little bit like candy? If candy were vegetable.
Related and rhetorical: why won’t I shut up about candy!?
These avocados feel like a hot commodity here in the South. In California, they grow on trees (like money, and Jimmy Choos) and you always have a friend who complains about the random avocado tree littering their backyard with avocados. Oooooh how I long for such produce problems.
In-skin slicing, because we’re very smart and very efficient.
Cilantro and onions in the avocado bowl all for the mashing.
Coarsely chopped roasted tomatoes and big crumbles of feta are folded into the mashed avocado mixture.
Lots of fresh lime, salt, and pepper, too!
That was easy, wasn’t it!?
It’s natural to feel mostly like a magician.
