Good enough to eat!

Bea is the cook in the Bessie and Bea combo, but I wanted to share this with you today ...

You know how you we see a recipe in a magazine that really catches our eye and think to ourselves: I'm going to make that ... someday, but we never do?

As you know, I've been going through my stacks and stacks of magazines, harvesting what I want and recycling the rest. I came across a deliciously healthy looking Avocado Salad that I wanted to make from Mr. Bessie.

This salad is so simple, but it is also simply delicious and full of nutrients as well. Avocados are one of those rare things that actually have healthy fats and it is a cholesterol lowering fruit.

All you need to make this is romaine lettuce, avocados, juice of a lemon or lime, coarse salt, white onion, tomatoes, ground pepper. I think next time I make this for the mister and my young'uns, I'll add some chuncks of cucumber and fresh olives! I look forward to making this salad during tomato season, it'll be even more delicious.

Oh! if you don't know how to properly pit an avocado, watch this video. Bon appétit!

Love,
Bessie
