Marinated Avocado Recipe


The Avocado is, in fact, a fruit, although we use it as a vegetable. There are several varieties, including those with smooth and shiny green skins, and the rougher brownish-black type. All ripe avocados have a beautiful pale green pulp that is easily removed from the skin and stone. A warning to diet-conscious; avocados have a high fat content.

This recipe is not authentic Jamaican.

Make about 1 cup


2 avocados, fairly firm

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tbs. wine vinegar

1 tsp. sugar

1/2 garlic clove, finely sliced

1/2 tsp. shallot, finely chopped

2 tsp. parsley, chopped

juice of 1 lemon or lime

2 endives, separated into leaves



Peel and slice avocados and place in a bowl.


In a separate bowl, combine all other ingredients, except endive leaves. Pour mixture over avocados slices, refrigerate to marinate for 2 hours.


Serve on bed of endive leaves.
