                                      Avocado dressed up Italian Style!

                                Chopped plum or vine ripe tomatoes,
                                 olives, mozzarella, pesto 

            A perfect blend of seasoning for your bread topping!

                                                            Slice down the middle

Stab the pit in the center with a sharp knife, twist it, and it will pop right out.

Scoop out for guacamole dip then mash. Score in several directions to cube. Or if you just want to serve slices, thinly slice the avocado lengthwise.
