Arequipa Avocado Salad

by Peruvian avocados

by Peruvian avocadosViewed 2207 times


    Arequipa is one of the most beautiful cities in Peru. Its colonial architecture and great weather make it a perfect place to sit outdoors and enjoy its own unique cuisine.


    1. 1. Boil the corn for 10 minutes then add the broad beans and carrot and boil for a further 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and when the cobs have cooled slightly take the kernels off the corn by slicing downwards with a sharp knife.

    2. 2. Chop the onions, avocado and feta cheese into cubes and slice the olives into round strips.

    3. 3. In a separate small bowl mix the olive oil, lime juice and salt and pepper and add the finely chopped chilli and parsley.

    4. 4. Stir this marinade into the rest of the ingredients in a large salad bowl or plate.

    5. 5. Chill for 10 minutes and serve. Delicioso!

      This looks lovely - I want to make this for my friends this weekend - it will go well with the many different Tapas dishes I am planning. Is this really a South American dish (Peru) it is very similar to ones we have here in Spain? Also can you tell me how much lime juice to use in the recipe and also should the chilli in the marinade / dressing be lots so it is hot?

    Avocado & Tropical Fruit Ceviche

    by Peruvian avocados

    by Peruvian avocadosViewed 2117 times


      This dish is one of the most refreshing savoury-sweet dishes you will ever eat. Its an ideal starter or sharing plate and its best eaten outdoors on a hot, sunny day


      1. 1. Firstly prepare the fruit. Peel the papaya, cut in half lengthways and remove the black seeds with a spoon. Slice the two halves into small cubes.

      2. 2. Next place the mango with one flat side resting on the cutting board. Slice lengthways along the flat side next to the seed. Turn over and repeat on the other side. In each half, cut a cross-hatch pattern through the mango pulp down to the skin, being careful not to cut through the skin. Turn the mango halves inside-out and remove the mango cubes with a sharp knife.

      3. 3. Place the pineapple on its side and cut off the top and bottom with a sharp knife. Stand the pineapple on its flat bottom and cut the skin off in strips. Use half the pineapple for this recipe, cutting it into circular slices, removing the core and cutting into small cubes.

      4. 4. Also cut the beef tomato into small cubes and de-skin and de-pip the avocados and cut in half lengthways.

      5. 1. Coat the avocados with a third of the lime juice by gently rubbing onto the flesh. This stops them browning.

      6. 2. For the Ceviche marinade, very finely chop the red onion, coriander leaves, and chillies/pepper. Add the remainder of the lime juice, salt, white wine vinegar and honey. Mix thoroughly.

      7. 3. Add the mixture to the cubed ingredients for the filling and leave in the fridge for 10 minutes to marinade.

      8. 4. Place half an avocado per serving dish with the hole facing upwards. Using a teaspoon, fill the hole with the filling and ceviche marinade. Any remainder filling can be used to decorate the dish. Use a couple of coriander leaves to decorate. Eat straight away. Que rico!

        We find that the best way to stop this happening is to put the Avo into boiling water for about 30 seconds to 1 min before peeling and slicing - works wonders!

        How do you keep the avocados looking so fresh and lovely, mine always go brown around the cut edge before I have a chance to serve them?

      Spiced Avocado, Orange and Red Onion Salad

        Punchy flavours and a variety of textures make this a great summer salad. Serve on bruschettas for a delicious summer canapé.


        1. 1. Halve, peel and de-stone the avocado and cut into slices, or cube if making bruschettas. Grate the zest from one of the oranges and reserve.

        2. 2. Cut away the peel and pith from the oranges and cut into bite size segments. Squeeze any juice from the discarded orange pith into a small bowl. Slice the onion into thin strips.

        3. 3. Mix together the cordial, olive oil, lemon juice, any reserved orange juice and zest and the de-seeded, sliced chilli. Toss the avocado, orange and onion into the dressing, quarter the olives and add to the rocket.

        4. 4. Slice the ciabatta, brush with a little olive oil, griddle until marked on each side. Either pile the salad onto the individual toasts and serve as canapés or serve the salad with the griddled toasts.

          1. 1. Cook the spinach in boiling water for 1 minute to wilt the leaves, then drain well and rinse with cold water. Squeeze the spinach to remove excess liquid, then chop finely.

          2. 2. Beat the soft cheese in a bowl until smooth, then stir in the spinach.

          3. 3. Mash the avocado with a fork and stir into the spinach mixture with the shallot. Season with salt and pepper, then serve with vegetable crudités.
