West African Avocado Salad
The tropical avocado, or alligator pear, is a treasured element of salads in many countries, especially in West Africa. It's appealing, delicate, nutty-flavored flesh with a buttery texture may be served unpeeled in halves or peeled in sections, with only salt, lemon or lime juice, or various salad dressings. Very often the halves are stuffed; or the fruit may be combined with other foods. Because the avocado discolors quickly when cut, it must be sprinkled at once with lemon juice or vinegar.

What You Need:
  • 1 head leafy lettuce, washed, dried, and refrigerated
  • 3 medium-sized ripe avocados, peeled, pits removed, and cut into rings
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, shelled and sliced
  • 3 medium-sized tomatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/3 cup peanut or salad oil
  • Juice of 1lemon
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • ╝ teaspoon cayenne
  • Salt, pepper to taste

  • How To Cook:
    1. Arrange lettuce leaves in a salad bowl.

    2. Place avocado rings, egg and tomato slices, in circles over lettuce.

    3. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.

    4. Combine remaining ingredients in a small jar, shake well and pour over salad.

    5. Serve at once.

    To Serve: 6 - 8
