Fresh or grilled, piled on sandwiches, tossed in salads, or swirled into a refreshing beverage or dessert, make green this summer’s most popular color by featuring Fresh California Avocados in signature dishes. Boost the flavor and appeal of chicken and fish sandwiches with Grilled Pineapple-California Avocado Salsa.
