Ingredients

  • 1 cup diced ripe tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons minced parsley
  • 3 ripe avocados, halved with pit removed *Be careful not to choose super soft avocados. They should have some give, but should not be very soft
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Additional salt and pepper for seasoning avocados and additional olive oils to brush on avocados

Directions

  • Preheat Saber® grill to high heat.
  • In a bowl, combine tomatoes, red peppers, feta, vinegar, olive oil, green onion, salt, pepper, and parsley. Do not make in advance and refrigerate as this mixture should be served from room temperature.
  • Rub lemon juice on the surface of the avocado halves. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Season the avocado halves with salt and pepper. Brush with olive oil.
  • Grill avocado halves flesh side down over high heat for several minutes. Once the flesh has deep grill marks, turn halves over, reduce heat to low and fill the avocados with tomato/red pepper/feta mixture. Cover the grill and continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes. The avocados are done when they are hot and soft all the way through. *Tip: The sides of the avocado will start to rise up slightly next to the skin when completely done.
