Avocado Boats With Mango, Strawberries & Balsamic Vinegar
One of my favorite snacks is simply to slice an avocado in half, pour in a little bit of balsamic vinegar, sprinkle on some salt and pepper, and dig in with a spoon (as seen here). It is so easy and quick to do, tastes deliciously creamy, and the healthy fats in the avocado will keep you feeling full and satisfied until your next meal comes around.
I decided to take it up a notch – although this is still very simple – and add fresh strawberries and mango to the mix, as these fruits complement the avocado surprisingly well (a fact I learned from making sushi way back in high school)! I highly recommend adding this mix to your next salad for a fruity twist.
I hope you guys enjoy this simple treat as much as I do!
