Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.


  1. Mash avocado with a fork and add 3/4 tsp. of lemon juice, 1/8 tsp. salt and chives. Taste and add more lemon and salt if necessary to make flavors pop.
  2. In a separate bowl, take half of the peas and smash gently with the back of a fork. Combine with the rest of the peas and add shallots, 1/4 tablespoon lemon zest, sherry, 1/8 tsp. salt, 3/4 tsp. lemon juice and 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil and stir to combine.
  3. In another bowl, combine parsley, mint, 1/4 Tbsp. lemon zest, 1/4 tsp. lemon juice and remaining olive oil.
  4. Brush the melted butter on the bread and lightly toast each side.
  5. Spread mashed avocado onto toast, making the sides slightly higher than the middle. Place pea mixture in the center, and pile high with seasoned herb mixture.
