Avocado Awards! $500 Giveaway!

February 20, 2014

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Avocados from Mexico. I received compensation for this post, however all opinions stated are my own.

It’s awards season!  But I don’t mean Hollywood’s Big Night on March 2, I mean  the “Avo Awards.”   Avocados from Mexico is rolling out the “green carpet” on Facebook for some friendly avocado competition and a few of my recipes are up in the running.

For your consideration, these are the my nominees…

  • My Nectarine Queso Fresco Guacamole for Best Dressed Avocado, my favorite salad that features avocados
  • My Avocado Cheesecake for Best Picture, showing the best food styling / food photo featuring avocados
  • My Crab Salad with Cool Avocado Soup for Best Supporting Avocado, featuring a side dish that includes avocados
  • My Hot Dog Torta for Best Leading Avocado, my favorite main dish that features avocado

Fresh avocados from Mexico are an extremely versatile fruit that can be eaten alone or used in a variety of recipes; as the main ingredient or topper, from appetizers to main dishes and even in desserts.  That’s why, my nominees are the perfect example of the different ways avocados can be prepared.
