  • Healthy for the heart

  • A Cancer fighter
  • A good source of folate for pregnant women
  • Helpful in lowering the risk of depression
  • High in fiber and good for improving digestion
  • Good for your immune system
  • Helpful in preventing chronic diseases

And yep, you totally dig your guacamole.  You might even have tried some snazzy, creative guacs, like Bacon Guacamole, or California Style Guacamole, or any number of the unique guac recipes found here.

But have you tried just grilling them straight?  Hefty and meaty, halved avocados are great for grilling.  And they look pretty handsome with those grill lines too.

Give ‘em a try and then wow your summer guests this season with a Grilled Avocado Bar, complete with fillings galore!
