Salute the Humble Avocado on July 31st
Just in time for summer, July 31st is National Avocado Day. The entire day is dedicated to celebrating the super food admired for its Omega 3 fatty acids and restorative health qualities. Served as a main dish, appetizer and even a dessert, this versatile fruit is popular with foodies and hungry noshers alike.
Avocados have moved way beyond guacamole, with world class chefs and home cooks adding avocados to breakfast smoothies and desserts to create a new dimension of flavor and texture.
