Avocado, Red Onion, Tomato & Basil


Preheat the grill. Finely chop the red onion and fry in a little olive oil with the balsamic vinegar until softened. Add a small amount of ground black pepper.

Place the red onion in the avocado hole left by the stone. Cut the tomato into 8 segments and place 2 segments onto each avocado half. Place the avocado halves under the grill for a couple of minutes until the avocados and tomatoes are warm and slightly softened.

Tear the basil leaves and sprinkle over the avocados with olive oil. Serve warm.
