Avocado Bowls with Bulgur Salad
These Avocado Bowls with Bulgur Salad are such a cute idea for serving your guests salad in a unique way without worrying about extra dishes to wash when you have company! Hey, I’m all about dish reduction in the kitchen, especially when I have people over. The bulgur salad is actually a well known Lebanese salad I grew up and making. Now, that I have an obsession with avocado (it’s a healthy obsession, I promise!) I want to eat everything with avocados. And that’s how I got this idea to put the bulgur salad inside the avocado.
Now, the problem with serving avocado is the browning issue, so I would recommend preparing the salad in advance, and just cutting the avocado as late as possible when your guests arrive. Then you can spoon the salad mixture when ready. But, I’ve also done this up to 2 hours before, and added some lemon juice on the avocado, which worked out great! It’s a healthy, delicious Mediterranean appetizer or side dish that will wow your guests.
