recipe

The avocado is known as a "pear" in Jamaica, and has also been called "poor man's butter." Those grown on the island have a smoother, lighter skin than Hass avocados, but the texture and the flesh are similar. There, avocados are most often served peeled and sliced with a morning meal or a sweet snack. From the book "Lucinda's Authentic Jamaican Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).

recipe

This recipe rebuilds the salad, reimagining it as crostini: Parmesan and dressed escarole (in place of romaine) are piled on top of white anchovies, which are cured in vinegar and oil and have a mild flavor.
