Lobster Salad with Avocado and Balsamic Drizzle


I have something so incredibly yummy to share with you.


If you like lobster half as much as I do, you're a goner...


My mom and I whipped this up together for her birthday lunch a few weeks ago and it was STELLAR! Sweet lobster, creamy mayonnaise, buttery avocado, with a syrupy balsamic drizzle. What could be better?


Whether a dinner party, cozy dinner for two, or for yourself - this recipe is fit to impress. And it couldn't be easier to prepare.


Coarsely chop cooked lobster meat. Mix with a bit of mayonnaise, celery, the zest of one lemon, and the juice of half. Season with salt and pepper. Put in refrigerator for the flavors to meld. Meanwhile, bring 1 cup of balsamic vinegar in a small, heavy-bottomed sauce pan to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until the vinegar is reduced to about 1/4-1/2 cup. Pour into a heat-resistant container and let cool (vinegar will continue to thicken as it cools). To serve: Halve avocados and scoop out of their shells. Place a half of an avocado on each plate. Scoop lobster salad over the top and drizzle with balsamic reduction. Serve with toast points and enjoy!
