On a healthier note, an avocado guacamole served with crudités (raw  vegetables cut into bite-size strips) is light and satisfying. Nearby,  place slices of old-style homemade cumin flavoured white bread and  excellent-quality balsamic vinegar and olive oil. This will allow guests  to drizzle vinegar and oil on the bread and, for a more substantial  portion, finish with a spread of guacamole.
