How to Make an Avocado Rose
- 1 ripe avocado
- lemon or lime
- kosher or sea salt
- Take a sharp knife and cut the avocado in half.
- Tap the pit with the sharpest part of your knife and remove.
- Place the avocado on a cutting board and gently remove the peel of the avocado.
- Starting at either end of the avocado, slice the avocado across into the thinest slices possible.
- Gently fan out the avocado into a long line with the slices overlapping each other.
- Starting from one end, slowly curl the slices towards the center. Continue curling until you form a rose.
- Squeeze a touch of lemon over the rose and sprinkle with salt
