Avocado Boats

For a complete meal, serve with Shredded, Saucy Barbecue Chicken Sammies and Pepper and Potato Salad.


  • 3 ripe Hass avocados
  • 1 lemon
  • Several drops of hot sauce, such as Tabasco brand
  • Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), for drizzling
  • 2 small plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • Coarse salt


Cut into and all around the pit of each avocado, down to the pit. Twist each avocado to separate it in two. Whack the corner of your knife into each pit and remove it.

Using a large spoon, scoop out each avocado half and arrange them on a plate. Dress the avocados with lemon juice, a few drops of hot sauce and a drizzle of EVOO.

Combine the tomatoes and scallions and season with salt. Fill the avocados with the tomatoes and onions; then serve.
