If you don't love avocados you are wrong.

And I will not endure any establishment that puts raw cabbage into a salad. Likewise, slivers of raw onion. These are seventies abominations of the worst ploughman's-lunch kind, associated with slabs of vile cheap cheddar and that most disgusting of condiments, Branston pickle. Others of similar ilk are salads containing bits of peanut and, worst of all, pieces of skinned tangerine. The Italians understand salads best of all. Grab a good Italian cookery book and be inspired. You won't find iceberg lettuce or Tesco cucumber in any Italian salad recipe. Quite right too. Mind you, Italy hasn't yet come to terms with avocado...
