Avocados and Apples

Apples and avocados seems like a mismatched pair. But when you put them together it’s a true marriage of flavors. And it’s the perfect combination for this time of year, when Fall is on your mind but you are still hanging onto the last days of summer. It’s the best of both worlds!

Avocados and Apples

I first started combining the two when my girls entered Kinder a few years back. With three lunches to make (my husband gets one too), I was awash in apples. I started putting them on my cheese and avocado sandwiches and never looked back.

And while sandwiches (and open faced toast) are still my go to, I have expanded to a couple of more dishes, the most perfect blend of Summer and Fall being my avocado and apple salad. This simple dish, with a side of bread, is a favorite back to school week meal of ours. I hope you enjoy it too!
