Warm Avocado Salad
Yesterday I posted about making Grilled Paprika Shrimp Quesadillas for dinner the other week. Today I’m going to show you how to make an easy, but yet satisfying side dish to go with those amazing quesadillas! I had never thought to grill avocado until I made the quesadillas. I just put together a few ingredients that I thought would work well together and voila, it did! The jalapeno really kicked it up a notch and the cilantro and lime gave the creamy grilled avocado a great flavor!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5-10 minutes
1 slightly under ripe avocado, pitted, removed from skinsalt and pepper
juice of 1 lime
handful of cilantro, chopped
1 2 inch slice of red onion
1/2 jalapeno, seeded
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil + additional to drizzle over vegetables
1. Pre-heat an outdoor grill on medium-heat. Drizzle olive oil over the slice of red onion and jalapeno. Slice the avocado in half, remove the pit, and place avocado halves on the grill along with the slice of red onion and jalapeno. Grill until red onion and jalapeno are well cooked (5-8 minutes). *Do not throw away the avocado skins. Keep them to serve the avocado in.
2. Remove the vegetables off the grill, dice onion, jalapeno, and avocado. Place in a bowl, and mix with lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, and salt and pepper. Spoon avocado salad into leftover shells, serve immediately.
