It's time to celebrate

Winter is officially over, and it’s time to celebrate! Fresh California Avocados are back in the marketplace, and will be available through Labor Day to brighten spring and summer menus. Foodservice operators can expect a good supply of Fresh California Avocados to add rich flavor, silky texture and “in season” appeal to a range of dishes.

One of the best ways to observe the return of warm weather and seasonal ingredients is showcasing Fresh California Avocados in a variety of preparations. California Avocado-Shrimp Spring Rolls are a riff on the popular Asian appetizer that burst with market-fresh tastes and colors. Crispy Fried Oyster Appetizer with California Avocados takes the Asian profile in another direction, spiking oysters, Fresh California Avocado and mango with kimchi vinaigrette. For customers who can’t get enough Fresh California Avocados, Avos Avos Avos delivers them in three different preparations.

 The California Avocado Commission recipe database offers an array of spring and summer menu solutions for all dining segments and dayparts.
