We also looked forward to the annual Avocado Festival in Carpenteria, about 8 miles south of Santa Barbara. You can find amazing Hass Avocados at this festival—and anything avocado you can think of. Ever tried avocado ice cream?
I usually double this recipe and add a bit of salt so I can nibble too!
1/2 Roma tomato, finely diced
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion (preferably walla walla)
4 sprigs cilantro
1/2 small lime
Scoop flesh out of avocado and place in mini food processor. Add diced tomato and chopped onion.
Pull parsley off vine and add to other ingredients in the processor.
Squeeze the juice out of a 1/2 small lime over the ingredients. Pulse just enough to break up the avocado and mix with other ingredients.
Serve as spoonfuls, or smear some on a piece of whole wheat pita bread. For the adults, add salt to taste. Oh, and margaritas to taste :)
