Grilled Avocado, Tomato and Cottage Cheese Salad Recipe:
This one’s an absolutely exotic salad, grilled avocados, tomatoes and cottage cheese salad with a sweet and tangy dressing. These avocados I had picked up with an idea of doing a nice chunky guacamole to go over some Italian bread loaf or baguette but they were not quite ripe to be mashed and made into a guacamole, but nonetheless they were just right to be made into a beautiful salad.
Buying avocados can be quite tricky at times. Last time I had just ordered them with my regular vegetable guy over the phone after he insisted that he’s got a fresh stock with him and somewhat proudly declared that he’s selling a lot of exotic herbs and vegetable these days. I did have my doubts for I like to pick my vegetables myself, but once in a while keeping a phone delivery option comes handy, anyway the avocado that was delivered was quite firm and seemed not quite ripe. My doubts did prove right though for on cutting it was quite hard and bitter in taste; both of the avocados I’d ordered finally went into the bin. While I did already know that raw avocados taste bitter and it is imperative that we pick ripe avocados but that’s the occasional price we have to pay for the convenience of home deliveries. To pick avocados I choose the one without scars and then gently press the fruit with my palm, if it feels firm but not hard and my fingers on applying a little pressure are only making a very soft dent, I know it’s quite right, neither unripe nor over-ripe. Well, that’s just a bit of my experience I thought of sharing for you might find it useful, perhaps.
Coming back to my salad, here’s the quick recipe try it yourself and know what I mean by a blast of refreshing taste.
