Awesome Avocado Balsamic Appetizer

I make something similar to this using avocado and caviar. However, caviar can be expensive, and not everyone likes fish eggs.

So, I’m using some balsamic pearls in place of the caviar. And, as everyone knows… a good balsamic and avocado are a marriage made in heaven. This dish is fairly simple to assemble and gives a wonderful presentation to your holiday table.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
