Ham Salad Filled Avocados

These ham salad filled avocados reminded me of a similar dish we used to eat in Lima, Peru. They’re fresh, light, and very tasty. The salad is nice and creamy and smooth and would be great just by itself. The mandarin oranges add a fantastic explosion of citrus flavor. Finally, there’s the perfectly ripe and creamy avocado. These ham salad-filled avocados are a perfect light lunch on a summer day.

Fortunately, avocados were on sale here last week. They’re very versatile and probably my favorite fruit. They’re definitely my favorite when they are filled with salad.

Also try my avocado and crab-mango salad.
