If you've been anywhere near Instagram, you know that avocado roses are all the rage. Simple, elegant, beautiful. Melissa (Smells Like Brownies) and I decided to try our hands at making them, and I think they turned out pretty well!
Watch this video to learn how to do it. Melissa is much more coordinated than I am, so those are her hands you are seeing.
Or you can follow these directions: Oil a cutting board and knife with olive oil.
Halve and peel an avocado.
Thinly slice both halves.
Fan out the slices.
Starting at one end, coil the slices into a spiral. Make adjustments as necessary.
Lovely. But we needed to turn this avocado into a meal.
So we sliced up a yellow heirloom tomato and toasted some homemade bread.
Layer some tomato on the toast, top with an avocado rose (or just plain avocado slices), drizzle with EVOO, and finish with flaky sea salt. Enjoy your delicious work of art!
