They have gadgets for everything now. When Lee (who is on my team) gave me an avocado cutter one day for a present I thought does this really work? Honestly, I don’t use the side that cuts the avocado but I live the slicing side. It makes it easy to pull out your ripe avocado. Inexpensive and for someone like me who LOVES avocado, I end up pulling out this handy gadget lots!
While we’re on the subject of avocados, if you like my easy Greek salad recipe wait until you make my Guacamole Goes Mediterranean. It truly is one of our favorite avocado appetizers ever!
