Potluck is this week's theme at I ♥ Cooking Club. I present a perfect accompaniment to a patio meal - a rich ripe avocado with a warm bacon and tomato dressing.
As the hot bacony mixture oozes over the cool avocado your only thought is - why didn't we eat both avocados instead of splitting just the one? Yes, it's that good.
We served the avocado with steamed shrimp seasoned with Old Bay and a fruit salad. This screams of summer dining.
Here is the recipe from Nigel Slater's book Real Fast Food. It's so simple I thought you'd like proof right from the book!
I am loving this book almost as much as Kitchen Diaries. Some things are just so simple you wonder why they are in the book but my goodness, they are so easy and delicious. Winning combo.
Tomorrow is Wine Wednesday and I will be posting the perfect wine with this meal.
Check out the other Potluck offerings at IHCC. Enjoy!
