Whether you use avocados to top off a warm piece of freshly toasted bread in the morning, in a homemade guacamole paired with crispy tortilla chips, or to turn a classic BLT into a BLAT, the creamy, trendy fruit is a versatile and delicious addition to sandwiches, salads and sides alike. There are hundreds of ways to enjoy this healthy green fruit, and grilling up an avocado is a hot take on cool classic that you might not be familiar with.
Some people are content eating an avocado right out of the skin with a spoon, but grilled brings out the avocados’ rich flavor in an unexpected way. A light coating of Duke’s Mayonnaise spread on the tender green interior protects the delicate fruit from burning on the grill and gives it a hint of citrusy flavor. The cool, tangy addition of Duke’s complements the buttery, earthy flavors of the ripe avocado, while helping the avocado retain its natural creaminess during grilling. After the avocado has been grilled to perfection, top it with juicy diced tomatoes, fresh basil, and cool, crumbled feta cheese for a flavorful side that pairs perfectly with Duke’s Garlic Herb Chicken Kebabs or a Duke’s Juicy Burger.
The popularity of the avocado has skyrocketed in the past few years, and it’s no surprise why. Because of the subtle flavor, the fruit is just as good stripped down as it is jazzed up with dressing, served with sour cream, thinly sliced atop a salad, or served grilled as a side to a juicy slab of steak. If you want to amp up a basic salsa, slice your grilled avocados up and add the chunks in with the tomatoes, cilantro and onions to add a smoky taste and creamy texture.
However you prefer to use your avocados, adding a little bit of Duke’s Mayonnaise goes a long way.
