Avocado and Vegetable Antipasto

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
1/2 Avocado, sliced
1 Tbs. Okra 'n Eggplant Jambalaya
Few leaves Lettuce
2 Tomato wedges
1 Marinated sweet pepper (we find them in bulk at the local supermarket)
Pane carasau
Extra virgin olive oil and Spike Original Magic to taste
Fan out a few pieces of pane carasau on part of a plate, sprinkle with Spike Original Magic, and drizzle with EVOO, possibly flavored with rosemary.
Add desired amount lettuce (or other mix of green leafed vegetable of choice), and complete the display with two wedges of tomato and one marinated sweet pepper.
Sprinkle with Spike Original Magic, and drizzle with EVOO, possibly flavored with rosemary.
Spoon the leftover Okra 'n Eggplant Jambalaya (or any other leftover vegetarian stew, such as Friggione, or Peperonelle) into the avocado pit.
Sprinkle more Spike Original Magic and drizzle EVOO to taste (optional).
Sliced Avocado and Marinated Beans with Papadam
It took me longer to write down ingredients and instruction than it takes to prepare it.
Though it is a good way to use up leftovers, as an alternative the avocado hole can be filled with one's favorite pesto.
Wine and Beverage Pairing
From young sparkling wines such as Prosecco, to crisp whites Vermentino di Toscana Bianco d'Elisa), and medium-bodied reds, such as the Chianti DOCG Guarniente, or the more structured Chianti Riserva Montalpruno, match this hors d'oeuvres. The perfect match depends upon the filling into the avocado dip. For the one described above I chose a bottle of Monica di Sardegna DOC by the Cantina Cooperativa Romangia.
