They’re quick, they’re pretty, they’re satisfying, and they’ll be gobbled up as a dinner party’s first course. To minimize browning, toss the reserved avocado with lime juice and then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap before putting it in the fridge. Even though browning won’t affect the taste or quality of the avocado, this trick will help minimize the color change brought on by oxidation.
