Today while grocery shopping I had a deep belly chuckle when my daughter asked, "If danishes are in season can we get some?" I guess all those times when she asked if we could buy strawberries in the middle of winter and I explained to her that they were not in season finally started to sink in!
Thankfully, when she asks to buy avocados I never have to say no, because Avocados from Mexico are always in season and always tasty!!! We eat avocados almost daily-for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My favorite way is to smash an avocado on some toast with some salt and pepper and eat it for breakfast. Just one ounce of fresh Avocados from Mexico has 50 calories and can enhance your recipes with a creamy, rich flavor that contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a good choice to help meet nutrient needs.
This is why I decided to green up our baseball game day spread by adding fresh Avocados from Mexico to lighten up our potato salad. By replacing more than half of the mayonnaise with creamy avocados, the calories are reduced and the flavor is creamier than ever! This is the perfect side dish to take to your next tailgating party!
Available year-round, fresh Avocados from Mexico make any dish better, especially for game day – from sandwiches and dips, to chili, salads and more. For more recipes and ideas, check out avocadosfrommexico.com or visit their Facebook page.
