14 days of Aphrodisiac Dishes -#12 Avocado-Cherry Salad

   
Avocados are high in vitamins A and C, niacin and minerals, including phosphorus and potassium.

I love Nahuatl, I do NOT know how to speak it, but I have a few friends, back in Mexico, that know how to. Avocado comes from the Nahuatl word “ahuacatl” which means testicle. They were known by my ancestors, the Aztecs, as “the fertility fruit”.
