I threw some random things in a bowl this morning and it was delicious. Here's what I had:
- handful of blackberries (8-10 berries)
- about 1/3 of a small fresh mozzarella ball, sliced into chunks about the same size or smaller than the blackberries
- half an avocado, also sliced into chunks like the mozzarella cheese. i recommend using not haas avocadoes as they have too much flavor
- a pinch of salt
- grade A maple syrup, about a teaspoon
Put the blackberries, mozzarella, and avocado in a bowl. Sprinkle the salt on, aiming mostly for the avocado & mozzarella chunks. Drizzle the maple syrup on top. Enjoy with a spoon!
This works because the blackberry provides an anchor flavor for the avocado and mozzarella. The salt and maple syrup soften the punch of the avocado & mozzarella, which make for a very satisfying breakfast!
