Nothing expresses the flavor of spring quite like the avocado. Its fresh taste, creamy texture, and bright green flesh make it the perfect fruit to add to your menu items to give customers a hint of the season in their tasty meals.
With simply plopping an avocado on a plate out of the question, whipping up a tasty sauce or creamy spread with avocados can be the perfect way to add a little post-winter flavor in your menu items. Not only does avocado give any dish a punch of refreshing flavor, but such an addition also adds another layer of nutrition. In just a 1/3 of an avocado (50 g serving size) the vitamins add up – delivering daily values of 6% Vitamin E, 4% vitamin C, and 6% potassium – along with 10% or more of the daily values for vitamin K, copper, folate, and fiber. It’s no wonder why this powerful addition makes it easy to entice customers.
Try one of these tasty recipes to spread a little spring over your dishes.
NOTE: These dishes only include measurements for serving small groups. You might have to increase the amount of ingredients used depending on the size of your restaurant.
