Avocado halves four ways – each takes less than 5 minutes. Liven up your avocado for a yummy snack!

When I was little, my mom used to give me half an avocado as a snack.

Usually it was filled with minced garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil. Ever since then, it’s been a favorite of mine.

Avocados are pretty versatile and taste good with many different flavors, so I did a bit of experimenting.

The lemon and oil and balsamic and oil toppings are nothing revolutionary, but I wanted to share those since you may not have tried them.

The other two are a bit different, and I think they’re delicious.

The one with Greek yogurt is basically a quick tzatziki. I love my kalamata olives, but feel free to omit them if they’re not to your liking.

The fourth one has a sweet and salty Asian-style dressing and is equally delcious.

I hope you enjoy these.

Avocado Halves Four Ways

Four fast ways to top avocados!
Prep: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes
Servings: 1


Method 1:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 parts olive oil
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • Smoked paprika to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Method 2:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 parts olive oil
  • 1 part balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Method 3:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried dill
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 5 kalamata olives pitted and halved

Method 4:

  • 1/2 avocado

  • 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon hoisin sauce

Method 1:

  • Squeeze lemon juice into avocado half (I do less than 1/2 a lemon), and then top with olive oil (approx. double the quantity of lemon juice). Add a pinch of smoked paprika and salt and pepper, to taste.

Method 2:

  • Pour vinegar into avocado half (I fill less than half the hole). Top with olive oil (approx. double the quantity of vinegar). Add salt & pepper to taste.

Method 3:

  • Mix everything together except for the olives. Add yogurt mixture to avocado and then top with the olives.

Method 4:

  • Mix ingredients together except for spring onion and then pour into halved avocado. Top with spring onion.

      Thanks Jasmin šŸ™‚ hope you enjoy it!

    Hi There. It says that the cook time is 4 minutes. But I wanted to know what it’s cooked in? Oven or microwave? Sorry it say sound like a silly question. Thank you so much!

    1. Natasha says:

      Hi! These aren’t actually ‘cooked’. When I input the recipe I have two choices – prep time and cook time. I consider the prep time the time it takes to get the ingredients ready, and then the cook time is when you’re actually making the dish even if it isn’t technically cooked. Sorry for the confusion šŸ™‚
