    Marital dispute! Leftover avocado storage.

    You have a partial avocado, having used half of it in a salad. Do you put it in a plastic baggie, wrap the cut side in plastic wrap, or something else? (And no, "eat it" doesn't count as something else.)

    I smush the side I didn't use into the bottom of my glass tupperware. At my salad place I've notice they keep half avocados stored in some sort of liquid. I'll ask what it is if I remember.

    Other. I do not buy avocados. I can never catch them at that magical time when they are ripe. Sorry, I know that's not helpful.

    Enough lemon juice poured in the bottom of a sealed container, in order to form a liquid barrier against the oxidation and further ripening of the cut edges. Refrigeration.

    We very rarely have leftover avocado but if we do, I just wrap it in plastic wrap and put in the fridge. It usually gets eaten within the day.

    You just reminded me that we have avocados. I am going to have avocado toast!.

    From doing Mason jar salads, I store it in a baggie with a cut onion, and it stays fresh

    Dabbed with lemon juice and wrapped in plastic wrap. And usually eaten within a day or two.

    "Leftover avocado" does not compute.

    Avocados are gross. Don't buy them at all! Problem solved!
