No wonder Angelika says you are such an inspiration! This sounds easy to do and excellent!


This sounds delicious, Johanna! I am having some friends over for dinner on the weekend and I'll be scrolling through your archives for other good canape ideas (this one will definitely be on the menu, though).


No wonder that Tanns says you are the queen of small bites. And I know what Meg is talking about.. I did not know that the stone prevents avos from browning, that's interesting. I mean I drizzle them with lime or lemon juice to avoid this, but thank you for sharing this tipp. Have a nice weekend !



Would you mind doing me a favour? When you arrive at the festa, please come sit by me so that I can gobble these all up without having to share. (Terrbile hostess aren't I?!)

These are just gorgeous and I thank you for sharing them with us and for coming to the festa!


Joanna, these canapes look so very delicious.. and what a way to represent fresh summer ingredients. Fantastic! Thank you so much for bringing them to the party.. they will be enjoyed by all, of that I'm sure! (well, that is, if Ivonne will share) :D


Excellent tip about leaving the Avocado stone in to prevent browning, one that not many people seem to know about.
The most interesting part of this recipe is the dip, and it's something I'm going to have to try.


leaving the avocado stone in is one of the many secrets about Mexican cooking I learnt while living there. discarded by many as an old wife's tale, I have found it to work every time!


Hi Johanna

Oh yes, you truly are the queen of the canape!! These look gorgeous (as always) and I can just imagine how great they will taste. The avo stone trick is a great one - it does sound like an old wives' tale - but it really does work!


Just beautiful and they should delicious.


Thanks for your entry to DMBLGIT - have a look at all the entries here :

Great idea for finger food (which I happen to think is one of the best kinds of foods!).


Wonderful apertizer! And avocado and lime are wonderful toghether!



Those look lovely and here in CA we get great avocados all yummy may pair with a tart margarita!

May I ask what spring onions are? Are they like green onions....long and thin green stems with small bulb?


I was really excited about this recipe but the fritters were really oily and tasted overwhelmingly of baking that quantity correct?
