Want a Quickie? I am talking about the appetizer!
Not a great cook? …Get Avo it! This is the Avocado toast you have been waiting for. Hass Avocados are richer in taste and creamier in texture, and make a perfect base for a crunchy, spicy Korean slaw called Kimchee. This is a vegetarian pleaser- with a creamy, tangy, Avo-Awesome profile.

What is Kimchi?
Kimchi is a traditional Korean staple whose components vary but usually include some combination of vegetables, garlic, ginger, chili peppers, salt, and fish sauce, and then pickled. Cabbage is the most common vegetable used to make Kimchi although carrots, radish, cucumber, and scallions are sometimes used, too. Kimchi is an excellent Probiotic and typically comes in varying levels of spice.
Make sure your avocados are dark and squeezable.
Your choice of Kimchi will make a difference- make sure the spice level matches your audience
Kimchi is usually found in the refrigerator section- near the produce
We have a bright and lightly spicy cocktail that will complement the Kimchee profile, Little Pecker Cocktail: http://cusskitchen.com/little-pecker-gin-cocktail
