TipsThe preparation of any salad is made easier with a good knife. Make the investment. Buy one good knife and throw out all the others. It makes sense to also buy a knife sharpener. Knife sharpeners can be purchased for a few dollars or a few hundred dollars. But don't forget to sharpen your knife on a regular basis.
I am preparing a salad for 165 people and must do this a few hours in advance of serving dinner. How can I prepare the avocado's ahead of time without them turning brown? I would appreciate any advice you have. Thank you.
Sprinkle all cut surfaces with lemon or lime juice or a bit of white vinegar, that should help. (Be careful not to use too much or you will get the flavor of the juice or vinegar in your salad...) Also, make sure you store the avocados in an air-tight container until you are ready to eat them!
