We love California avocados! They’re delicious, healthy, and pair well with extra virgin olive oil and many other foods. Plus, they’re in season. In the dish featured here, ripe, creamy avocados kick ordinary potato salad up a significant notch. (Click here to see recipe.

. Large avocados - about 8 oz. - are recommended. Adjust the quantity accordingly if using smaller or larger size avocados. The best way to tell if an avocado is ripe and ready for immediate use is to gently squeeze the fruit in the palm of your hand. Ripe, ready-to-eat fruit will be firm yet will yield to gentle pressure.In addition to avocados and cooked red new potatoes, the salad includes celery, sweet onion, and cilantro. Try our Everyday Fresh
or our medium-robust Arbosana
to make the olive oil, mayonnaise, and lemon juice dressing. (Click here to see recipe.
