Corned Beef Appetizers Recipe For St. Patrick’s Day
What a great accompaniment to a pre-dinner beer on St. Patrick’s Day! The “shamrock” is made with a shamrock cookie cutter and sliced avocado.
Who’d have thought to pair corned beef and avocado? The California Avocado Commission!
And they’re not just for St. Patrick’s Day. Serve them with a beer anytime with a regular slice of avocado on top; or use a different cookie cutter for other holidays.

1. MAKE the shamrocks. With the peel still on, slice four slices (¼-inch thick) from the sides of the whole avocado. Remove the pit from the center section and slice the avocado in half lengthwise. Then peel the slices.
2. USING a small shamrock-shaped cookie cutter, cut shamrock-shaped avocado pieces for each cracker. Cover the surface with plastic wrap so avocado doesn’t discolor; set aside.
3. PLACE the remaining avocado in a small bowl and stir in the pickles. Spread the avocado mixture on each cracker.
4. TOP with two squares of corned beef, then an avocado shamrock. Serve.
