Avocado seems to be everywhere these days, from the corner markets to the menus of five star restaurants.

At home, one of my favorite dishes to make is a caprese salad with avocado – tomato, basil, and fresh buffalo mozzarella all go together perfectly. Besides my preferred ways of eating avocados, they can also be used in a variety of dishes, such as:
The only real downside? They are 234-240 calories per cup and 77% of that is fat. Yes, good fat, but still fat… Definitely not a diet food. That said, I would like to try each and every one of these dishes. Please and thank you.
