  1. Place lettuce on salad plates and add one quarter of a Fresh California Avocado to each plate.
  2. With rind still on, cut Brie cheese into wedges of about 1 oz. each. Put on a microwave-safe plate and cook in microwave on high power for 5 to 15 seconds, or until cheese is warm and just starting to melt. Do not overcook.
