Baked Avocados with Strawberry Salsa

Strawberry-Avocadoa-1
Ingredients
  • 3 avocados
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup strawberries, stemmed and quartered
  • 2 scallions, white and light green parts thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons goat cheese crumbles
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the avocados in half. Remove and discard the seeds. To help the avocados remain upright during cooking, create a flat surface for them to rest on by slicing a small area (about the size of a postage stamp) off the back side of each half, being careful not to cut too deeply into the avocado. Place the avocados on a rimmed baking sheet, flesh side up. Rub a small amount of olive oil over the flesh. Transfer to your pre-heated oven and bake for 8 minutes.
  3. While the avocados are baking make the strawberry salsa. Gently mix together the strawberries and the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. After 8 minutes, remove the avocados from the oven. Carefully fill each half with some of the strawberry salsa. Place the avocados back in the oven for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. These are best when eaten while still slightly warm.
