Mémé's Avocado Carpaccio

[Photographs: Kerry Saretsky]

This is my grandmother's recipe, and she serves it at the beginning of almost every big family meal. Simple, but a perfect study in creamy avocado meeting the tart spark of citrus. Avocado may not be much of a secret in this stark dish, but who can complain when avocado is the main event?
