RECIPE: Christmas Stuffed Avocado

How red and green and Christmassy! Consider this festive avocado as the first course of a holiday dinner.

Fresh lingonberries and their leaves have been used to garnish this stuffed avocado, but they are hard to come by. Instead, if you want to use the garnish, substitute pink peppercorns (look for the reddest ones). Note: You’ll get plenty of red and green without the peppercorn-leaf garnish, but it sure does look nice!

We mixed in some crabmeat we had on hand. You can also add chunks of lobster or shrimp.

This recipe is from Bella Sun Luci, whose sun dried tomatoes (from the sunny state of California) we used in the recipe. We love their entire family of sundried tomato products, which include:

  • Sun Dried Tomato Halves or Julienne Cut
  • Julienne Cut Sun Dried Tomatoes with Italian Basil or Greek Oregano, Basil & Garlic (we use them in omelets and pasta)
  •

  • Sun Dried Tomato Halves or Julienne Cut in Olive Oil & Herbs (great to toss into salads and on sandwiches)
  • Sun Dried Tomato Pesto with Whole Pine Nuts

    The line is certified kosher by Kosher Certification of Kashruth.
