By July, summer dining is in full swing and menus feature foods hot off the grill. For the season’s biggest holiday, the California Avocado Commission encourages operators to expand their traditional grill menu with Fresh California Avocados.
Fresh California Avocados that are just beginning to ripen are perfect for the grill. With the application of heat, the fruit softens, releasing a ripe, nutty flavor, and taking on a pleasant smoky tang. Favorite Fresh California Avocado recipes that start on the grill include, Grilled California Avocado with Jumbo Prawns and American Kobe Flank Steak Sandwich, Grilled Sourdough, Pickled Onions, and California Avocado-Heirloom Tomato Salsa. Or, consider California Avocado Roasted Garlic Dip to top grilled proteins and vegetables.
