Hot Avocado BoatsThere was a time when avocados were considered forbidden fruit. Their high fat content made them a dieter’s bane. Then came the discovery of "healthy fats." Avocados are packed with health-promoting monounsaturated fats, especially oleic acid, along with a healthy dose of potassium and other nutrients.
This recipe probably originates from the days when dinner at home often began with half of a canned peach filled with a dollop of cottage cheese. Despite its origin, the tangy hot vinaigrette filling the center of a smooth, luscious avocado half is a combination that can’t be beaten.
