• Andrew Zimmern Cooks: How to Cut an Avocado


The Easiest Ways to Prep an Avocado

Whether you slice it, dice it, scoop it, smash it or simply cut it in half and eat it with a spoon, there’s no denying avocados are one of the most beloved fruits around the world—we consume more than 4 billion per year in the United States alone. And yes, it’s a fruit. It’s actually a single-seeded berry that grows on a tree and is packed with vitamins, mineral, antioxidants and healthy fats. Here are a few really easy ways to prep them for your next meal.
