Avocado and Tomato

I love avocados. They are full of healthy fats and taste delicious. One night I didn't feel like making a salad and decided to try out this simple recipe, that I have adapted slightly from The Australian Women's Weekly- Veggie Stars Cookbook, that Gail brought me back From Australia (Thank you Gail!) Its a great book that tells you all about buying, storing and cooking different vegetables. There are some in there I haven' even heard of such as Celeriac and Swedes! I look forward to trying out some new veggie recipes from this book.

- 2 large avocados
- 2 large tomatoes ( I used cherry tomatoes because that's what I had)
- 1 small red onion, chopped finely
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (could use less)
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 tablespoons coriander (I also didn't have any on hand)
1/4 teaspoon tobasco sauce or hot sauce

1. halve avocados and discard skin ( I kept it on)
2. combine remaining ingredients in small bowl
3. serve avocado halves with tomato mixture

I think its the lime juice and hot sauce that made this recipe so delicious. It is simple and quick and can be easily adapted for fewer or more people.
