Favorite avocado toppings?

Okay, so it's not quite "cooking," but what are some of your favorite quick toppings for when you cut avocado in half and eat it right out of its skin? Sure, they're great with lime, but I feel I'm missing something.

  1. I've had and enjoyed them with soy sauce and with seafood sauce (separately, not both at the same time). Lime, garlic and salt punches up the lime option too.

      Definitely soy sauce, or ponzu. Addictive.

      1. Smoked salmon (or crab, or prawns) chopped and mixed with sour light cream, a little lemon juice, and herbs or spring onions.

        Or, your favourite salsa

        1. I know it sounds weird, but a very small drizzle of condensed milk is pretty good on them. Complete antithesis of the lime/salt/chile thing, but tasty in its' own right.

            My mind's mouth says yes ma'am to that, sounds quite wonderful.

              That sounds like the basis for a Vietnamese avocado shake, mamachef, one of my favourite ways to ingest an avocado. Though not possible straight out of the skin, of course :-).

              Blue cheese is good, blue cheese salad dressing and some walnuts is better!

                I make a bruschetta with tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil. Put a little blue cheese and melt it in a toaster oven. Finish it off with thick slices of avocado.
