Even when it sounds a little strange, grilled avocados are perfect for a barbecue party. They can accompany any meat and salad and can surprise your guests.

Every fried food is delicious, but sometimes there is some fried food that also brings a nutritious element. That is the case of the fried avocados; you can serve them as a side dish or substitutes for french fries.

To make them, take one cup of vinegar, one cup of water, and one spoon of salt; mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and boil them.

You can add garlic, herbs, or another spice to the vinegar to change the character.
