The beloved fruit is a hit year-round, but you can find homegrown avocado—from California—in stores in the spring, as the growing season lasts from February to September. There’s a lot to love about the amazing avocado, including its creamy texture and buttery flavor as well as the nutrient profile (including fiber, healthy fat and potassium). Guac is an obvious way to use the star fruit, but I also like to stuff it with chicken salad and use it as a boat in this recipe. It’s a fun presentation and so satisfying.
