Ingredients:

  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and quartered

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 2 small avocados, halved and pitted

  • Cooking spray

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, gently stir together the strawberries and honey. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally to let the strawberries macerate and release their natural juices.

  2. When the strawberries are ready, preheat the grill on medium high.

  3. Lightly spray each avocado with cooking spray. Place the avocados on the grill with the stem side facing 10 o’clock. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes. Rotate the avocados so that the stem side is facing 2 o'clock. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the avocado halves to plates with the flesh side up.

  4. Fold the mint into the strawberry mixture.

  5. Spoon the strawberry mixture over each avocado half.
