Some special events require a bumper supply of Fresh California Avocados and Cinco de Mayo is one of them. For Fresh California Avocado lovers, Cinco de Mayo salutes an historic date with a celebration of menu signatures that feature their favorite seasonal fruit. 

Good news for operators, Cinco de Mayo also kicks off the peak of Fresh California Avocado ripeness and availability, and offers an ideal opportunity to showcase the fruit to its best advantage. Blessed with a mild, nutty taste, a rich, smooth texture, Fresh California Avocados infuse any dish with a unique California style and appeal. For Californians, the “good” in “good for you” means something delectable like the veg-centric Stuffed California Avocado Quinoa Salad or the classic California Avocado Flatbread Sandwich. In the Golden State, diners might start with a Verde Margarita and add a side California Avocado Cornbread.
