    I've been doing this for years but without BBQ'ing the avocado. This is a nice twist to it.
    Great healthy snack - I use it for appetizers quite often in the summer or winter. - 4/30/14

    This was easy and delicious! I have never tried grilling avocado, but it was great. (I used a firm avocado. I'm not sure a very ripe one would work as well?) - 2/4/15
