WANNA HAVANA? SALAD

Do I wanna? You damn skippy!

Do I wanna Havana? It’s been a dream of mine since I was a small child. Seriously, I picture myself in the long long ago era of Havana’s heyday drinking mojitos on the street and puffing on fat cigars. Cuban girls, a preferred pastime of mine, my version of baseball, bring out the happy happy in me. So yes, absolutely I wanna Havana. Too bad I’m an American with that 50 year-old embargo cock-blocking my Havana cabana-existence. So I must resort to other means. Namely serving Cuban style avocado salad to the Cuban girls and hoping to not piss off Castro brothers in the process.

Total time: Approximately 3 minutes
Projected cost: $4
Drinking buddy: MO MOJO MOJITO

Ingredients (serves 2)
1. 1 tbsp CALIVIRGIN olive oil
2. 1 dash sea salt
3. 1 dash black pepper
4. 2 handfuls cherry tomatoes
5. 1 AVOCADO
6. 1 lemon wedge

Step 1
Slice the cherry tomatoes in half and chop up the avocado in small bites. Toss with olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper.

    Hi Spencer! I had forgotten until this morning that you had given me a postcard with your book signing information… but turned it to find you had signed it for me already. In any case, I love your blog and can’t wait to read your book. It was a pleasure meeting you last night.
