Irvine, CA (March 2009) — With consumers cutting back on restaurant spending, it’s more important than ever for restaurants to spin value on their menu in the form of attractive dishes with wholesome, quality ingredients like Fresh California Avocados. It’s the key to keeping them coming.
In season from March through October, versatile Fresh California Avocados contribute rich taste, luxurious texture and popular appeal across day parts and menu segments. California Avocado growers and packers ensure their fruit is picked at its peak and shipped ripe to assure operators can serve the best possible product to their customers.
The unique, nutty flavor of Fresh California Avocados complements a wide range of traditional and innovative dishes. The California Avocado Commission offers a wide array of recipes ranging from hearty breakfast sandwiches to Asian-style salads to two-bite appetizers like Avocado Roasted Corn Nachos.
