California Avocado Summer Recipe Ideas
Fire up the grill and gather your family and friends because summer is in full swing – and so is California Avocado season! Living in California, we know that April through September marks the peak season for California Avocados. And that’s a tip we want to share with you because now is the perfect time to add this versatile fruit to your summer barbecues.
As chefs, we love that the California Avocado peak season – when the fruit is at its freshest and most flavorful – coincides with summer because avocados are such a wonderful complement to so many summer dishes. We can honestly say there is nothing more delicious than a California Avocado in the summertime, with a touch of extra virgin olive oil and a little sea salt. And without a lot of effort, you can add that creamy texture and delicious flavor we love so much to a variety of foods, including burgers, salads and sandwiches.
Each summer, we make it a point to take full advantage of the abundance of premium avocados available in the markets. This amazing fruit always inspires us to come up with new recipes perfect for casual summer meals. Everyone knows avocados are the essential ingredient in guacamole, but there are so many other ways to make a dish extraordinary with avocados.
In the spirit of summer, we’ve created a delicious recipe perfect for outdoor barbecues –
Grilled Skirt Steak Sandwich with California Avocado and Blue Cheese. This dish combines the zingy flavor of blue cheese with the rich, nutty flavor of California Avocados to make a typical grilled steak sandwich truly outstanding. This is just one of our recipes featuring Fresh California Avocados. If you are looking for some further inspiration on ways to include this tasty fruit into your summer meals, check out the recipe page on this Web site by clicking here: http://www.CaliforniaAvocado.com/recipes.
Approximately 5,000 California Avocado farmers are taking the hand-grown approach to deliver the best possible fruit to your table. These family-run avocado farms produce 90 percent of the nation’s avocado crop, mostly in the region between San Diego and Santa Barbara. So take time to enjoy the summer season with California Avocados!
