Step 1: Halve and peel a ripe avocado
Select a nice, ripe avocado. I prefer to buy them hard, then let them soften on my kitchen windowsill. Any kind of avocado will do; this is a Fuerte avocado.
Cut your avocado in half, remove the pit, and gently peel off the skin. If the skin sticks, pare it off with a knife as necessary; take care to keep your avocado half looking sharp as it's going to have to stand up to scrutiny on its own.
Figure 1-2 halves per person, depending on what else you're serving.
