A Fresh Fiesta with California Avocados

They say that California knows how to party – we have a feeling it starts when local, hand-grown California Avocados are on the menu. Why not throw a California-style Cinco de Mayo fiesta? From zesty guacamole to savory seven layer dip, California Avocados are on the menu of any Cinco de Mayo party worth its grain of (Margarita) salt. Here are a few ideas to refresh your fiesta:

  • Start with [p]inspiration! Check out our Pinterest board for Cinco de Mayo party-planning tips, décor and recipes
  • Look at the produce labels while grocery shopping – make sure you buy California-grown avocados. No ripe ones available? Here's how to ripen your California Avocado in time for the party
  • Consider your guests’ dietary preferences. Browse Gluten Free, Paleo Friendly and Diabetic Friendly recipes. Have a vegetarian on your guest list? Check out these vegetarian recipes.
