pintrest fail: caprese stuffed avocado

I have been trying to cook more meals rather than bake, here is a recipe that looks absolutely divine and I thought would be fool proof. I found this first image thanks to Lisa from butterflies and daisies and her pintrest board. The original recipe can be found here. I however I forgot the fact that I have never been able to pick a proper avocado. I googled tips before shopping on buying a ready to eat one and of course I made poor decisions at the grocery store! The caprese filling it fool proof and I have a feeling I will be trying this out again. I did try it again and it is delicious I used soy sauce instead of reduced balsamic and really enjoyed it. A very simple yet healthy lunch option, if you can pick yourself the perfect avocado of course.


  1. I'm glad it tasted good! I am terrible at picking avocados too! I think one must be some sort of psychic to pick a good one.
    I'll have to try my hand at it soon regardless. Wish me luck!


  2. It still looks tasty to me! Here's a little avocado picking tip for you - if the little stalk comes off with a very gentle push it's ripe if it takes more effort it needs another 1-2 days and if it doesn't budge at all then it'll take another 4-5 days to ripen

    1. Thanks for the tip! I knew I wanted one with the stock still on it but I never tried to move it. Or maybe I should have bought one without the stock...ooh next time I will buy a green one and wait for it to ripen at home:)

  3. i love this post!
