This is the perfect late summer lunch. It is an easy and simple way for serving those super tasty small Hass avocados! Makes a perfect single serve lunch, for one, or even better - share larger ones with a friend.

In the morning just cut through the skin to the pit all the way around without separating. At work or at school just twist to open. No mushy funny colors, just bright green and healthy deliciousness.

Add balsamic vinegar, salt, or a heaping tablespoon of bay shrimp salad to each half. Eat with a spoon right out of the half shell. No muss, No fuss!
