Though tartare from French cuisine is traditionally made with raw meat or fish and classic tartare typically features beef or tuna, we are going to reimagine it with avocado as the central ingredient since the weekend calls for some creativity and experimentation. The term "tartare" refers to a method of culinary preparation where the main ingredient is finely chopped or minced and seasoned with various herbs, spices and condiments but since avocados are no longer just a component of guacamole for parties, we are all in the mood to try our hands on whipping up Avocado Tartare.
