Avocado Veggie Boat

What is Cinco de Mayo without an avocado starring meal? Below is a simple recipe for a heart-healthy, holiday friendly, avocado boat filled with a veggie salad. The colorful dish is finished with a punch of citrus from The Filling Station's lime infused olive oil.

Avocado Veggie Boat
1 avocado
1/4 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup sweet yellow corn kernals
1 tbsp queso fresco
1 tsp sliced scallions
1 tbsp lime infused olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1. Halve and pit avocado. Cut one half into small chunks, reserve meat and discard the shell. Hollow out second half leaving a layer of avocado meat around the edges of the shell.
2. Combine avocado chunks, cherry tomato slices, corn kernels, queso fresco and scallions. Toss with lime infused olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
3. Fill hollowed out avocado with veggie salad and scatter remaining salad around the "boat".

The finished boat- a fun Cinco de Mayo meal
