Do you ever find an ingredient that is SO versatile that you could eat it morning, noon, and night? Avocado is one of those.  I never ate them as a child, and my husband as a younger man thought they tasted like green soap.  But we have evolved and found that there is more to the fruit than guacamole. The origin of avocados is Southern Mexico, around 9,000 years ago.  It was a popular food in Central and South America for the Aztecs and Mayan people and today most of the world’s avocados are grown in Mexico.  Until 1915, this giant berry was called the Alligator Pear, due to its shape, but that shape has also lead to some confusion with the the words for testicle and lawyer in several   languages. They are popular today due to their creamy taste and healthy benefits. Go ahead, eat some avocados.

Slice the avocado, beef, salmon, and cucumber in long strips, but not longer than the diameter of the bowl in which you will serve it. Put the rice into two bowls with a wide diameter. Distribute the rice evenly over the bowl. Lay the other ingredients on top of the rice in what ever arrangement pleases you. Serve with extra soy sauce and enjoy a quick meal.
