This Avocado Salad with Paprika was adapted from Eder Montero. It’s an utterly simple salad with “pitch-perfect” flavors. It’s important to choose the very best paprika and olive oil you can find.
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
- flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil (or to taste)
- 4 teaspoon everything bagel seasoning
Carefully cut each avocado in half lengthwise around the pit. Remove the pit and peel both halves. Lay the avocado halves onto individual plates or a large serving platter. You may alternatively cut each half into slices and array them decoratively on each plate.
Drizzle each half with ½ teaspoon vinegar. Generously sprinkle each of the avocado halves with paprika. You can use a fine-mesh sieve to achieve a consistent dusting. Season with salt, drizzle generously with oil. Garnish each with a teaspoon of everything bagel seasoning. Serve immediately.
