Grilled Avocado

Grilled avocado is a wonder and you’ve got to try it.This months Gourmet has a recipe for a Romaine, Grilled Avocado, and Smoky Corn Sald with Chipotle-Caesar Dressing.  It sounds delicious, doesn’t it?

I grilled the corn and avocado on Sunday and have been bringing the salad to work for lunch. I made the dressing without Parmesan to keep it vegan. This time instead of bringing my camera to work, I just took a picture with my Blackberry and called it a day.

Get the recipe for the salad and dressing HERE.

  1. Wow, this looks incredible. I mean, why NOT grilled avocado? Grilling makes just about everything better. This is the perfect summer meal. Great pictures, too — I don’t think my blackberry pictures would look like that.

  2. I guess the avocado must taste quite smoky. Avocado has such a weak taste that it is used in vegan chocolate desserts like chocolate mousse or chocolate cake.
    Avocado is a superveggie!

  3. I grilled some a couple of days ago – you’re right, they are totally ridiculously awesome. I like them baked, too – they bubble right up and out of the skin.

    Gonna have to try that dressing recipe…

  4. I love grilled avocados and could easily eat them with each meal. Your photos are gorgeous! I saw a recipe in Sunset magazine for deep fried avocados which might be a fun treat. Probably not easy on the waistline though!

  5. I’ve never heard of tossing an avocado on the grill, but now that you mention [and picture] it, that sounds amazing! I can just imagine how warm, creamy, and delicious that would be… I must try it!

  6. I’ve only eaten avocado in raw.. I will try this for sure. We finally bought a BBQ after our last on set on fire a few years ago. Can you imagine surviving without BBQ for 2 straight summers?! Now I’m exited to put everything on the grill. Last week it as broccoli. Anyway… that looks delicious!

  7. that sounds insanely good, i made a avocado omelet with cherry tomato salsa and it was SO good. I have to try this too! thank you!

  8. This looks so good!!! We are serious avocado addicts at our house, and we feel very strongly about corn and chipotle too, so this is definitely a recipe for us! Thansk for sharing!

  9. This does sound delicious!!! I’ll trade lunches with you!!! I love grilling random things: like lettuce, and pears and avocados and cheese. Just makes the BBQ experience more memorable 🙂

  10. I have to grill an avocado!!! I’m sure I will love it! Sometimes I cook or use them in a recipe but I’ve never tasted grilled avocados, so…

  11. I love all the ingredients and sounds delish. There is also a recipe in Gourmet with grilled scallions, corn and red bell peppers. dressing with lime juice cilantro hot smoky paprika. its good as well. have you tried it?
