As an artist’s medium, the graceful slices, colorful dices and impressive half-shells of Fresh California Avocados add visual appeal, along with smooth, rich flavor, to any dish.  A swirl of slices frames the other ingredients in a Fresh Avocado and Mango Salad, while vivid chunks of Fresh California Avocado brighten the filling of an Avocado Flatbread Sandwich.  For a signature presentation, Spicy Cajun-Style Scrambled Eggs in a Hot California Avocado Half Shell demonstrate why natural containers will always be popular with diners.
