Last night I got a ripe avocado and decided to make an avocado salad. It was full of flavor with a an interesting spicy kick.
The tomatillo adds a slight sweetness. I didn’t think of this myself. A while ago I had lunch at Austin Cantina and after being especially impressed with the guacamole I asked the waitress what gave it a hint of cherry flavor. She said it was the tomatillo. Now, mine doesn’t taste anything like cherry but the combination of flavors is delicious.

Avocado Salad

1 avocado
1 hard boiled egg
1 hard boiled egg white
1  diced tomatillo  (bake in oven for a few minutes  and it makes it even better)
Juice of half a lime
Chili powder to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
A small bunch of chopped cilantro (about one tablespoon or more).

1. Mash all ingredients.
