Avocado Halves

Avocado halves garnished with black and white sesame seeds, at Bo’s Kitchen.

 

We often enjoy an avocado half for breakfast, plain or with a splash of balsamic vinegar.

We also have it as a first course with lunch or dinner.

While we’ve filled the centers with everything from tuna salad to marinated cherry tomatoes to salsa and dilled Greek yogurt, we never thought of garnishing the cut rim…until we saw this photo from Bo’s Kitchen.

Now, we’re converts, using rim garnishes such as:

  • Chia seeds
  • Chile flakes
  • Chopped fresh herbs
  • Chopped nuts
  • Crushed corn flakes
  • Flavored oil (basil, chile, rosemary, truffle, etc.—brush on)
  • Garlic chips
  • Microgreens
  • Panko bread crumbs
  • Pink peppercorns
  • Sesame seeds
  • Spice blends (e.g. shichimi togarashi, za’atar)
  •  
    …and even crushed pretzel crumbs from the bottom of the bag!

    What would you add?

    By the way: This concept also works with a DIY avocado party bar.
