Caprese Stuffed Avocado

Trevor and I were at Costco the other day when we saw a bag of six large avocados for $5. They are usually $2 each at the grocery store, so this was quite a bargain! Steve was on a business trip, so I did hesitate for a moment before buying them, wondering if just Trevor and I could eat six ripe avocados before they went bad. But we were up for the challenge.

I harvested the very last of the tomatoes from our garden and chopped them up with a little bit of basil. I diced fresh mozzarella and made some sourdough croutons. I mixed it all with a little salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar and spooned the mixture over a halved and peeled avocado.


It was really good, a perfect light summer dinner. I've been scouring the internet for other stuffed avocado recipes and have pinned a few that look particularly fabulous. How do you like to serve avocados? I'd love some suggestions!
