Community Picks -- Avocados

July 31, 2014

The results are in -- here are the recipes our community loved from the Your Best Avocados contest! This contest was brought to you by our friends at Avocados from Peru, who are just as obsessed with avocados as we are.

Once again, we want to give a big thanks to all of our volunteer recipe testers for your thoughtful comments and for helping us continue to strengthen our recipe recommendations. You can read the winning headnote and tester's comments by clicking through to the Community Picks recipes -- the comments are at the top. And even if the recipe you tested wasn't chosen as a CP, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Here, here to California Grown Avocados! We are a small California avocado grower and appreciate all who buy "Hand Grown in California."

I'm sorry, but why not getting together with the California avocado growers - CALAVO? Aren't we trying to eat more locally sourced food? At least stay in this country.
