Avocado Sashimi with Crunchy Almond Salsa
The title of this recipe may sound exotic, but avocado sashimi to us is just another creative way to serve fresh, ripe avocado. Here, thin slices of avocado are topped with a crunchy salsa made with soaked almonds. Drizzled with olive oil, dusted with sea salt and fresh ground pepper, and served with a slice of lemon, this dish is delicious and easy to prepare. Serve it family-style, as part of a Mediterranean mezze, and watch it disappear from the table in no time!
