Grilled Avocado and Tomato Roll-Ups Recipe Card | Taste As You Go

Seeing as I will be embarking tomorrow on a weekend adventure to Pittsburgh to see a friend from college get married, I wanted to prepare a dinner that would use up some of my produce. I also wanted something a little lighter as I pretty much survived on the leftover Farfalle with Italian Sausage and Broccoli Rabe for the past couple of days.

My original plan was to make a regular sandwich -- stuff between two slices of bread. But I had another monumentally irritating experience with Time Warner Cable today that involved me leaving work early so I could sit in my apartment for four hours and having them show up to fix my cable modem issues... So a regular sandwich wasn't going to cut it.

Grilling the avocado after tossing it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar really deepened the flavor of the buttery fruit and created a smokiness that was enhanced by the hot sauce. Of course, with a recipe like this one, you could really add anything to the tortilla before rolling it up and it would be delicious, from grilled chicken or steak to black beans or roasted corn. The possibilities are endless!

I am going to have to try grilling an avocado! Thanks for the storage tip.
Kevin - The grilled avocado really is fantastic. I was worried the texture of the avocado would make it hard to flip, but if you leave it alone when you put it on the heat -- like you would fish or chicken -- and only touch it when it's time to flip, you'll be fine. Then again, I guess that depends on the ripeness of the avocado. I hope you enjoy the grilled avocado as much as I did!
