It's great with veggie sautés and really great with meats. Especially on the grill!

It's also good for the hair :)

If its cold-pressed, I would stay away from cooking with it purely for cost effectiveness; why but expensive, good quality, nutritious oil only to render most of the nutrients out. I would stick with a vinaigrette. You could certainly serve it with a warm salad or garnish a soup with it.

Better yet! Make vegan avocado ice cream. The water content in whole avocados doesn't allow for a custardy texture, but if you blended with avocado oil (and maybe a touch of coconut meat if necessary), it would be amazing. Just taste for sweetness and be aware that it will taste less sweet once frozen.

Cooking anything, moisturizer for skin, any recipe you would use olive oil.

Salad dressing benefit from the nutty flavors of avocado oil. It is also good for frying and sauteeing--it stands up well to heat.
