Serves: 4

2 ripe Fresh California Avocados, peeled and seeded 1/2 cup fresh cranberries, halved 2 tsp. minced jalapeño, optional 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice 1 Tbsp. agave nectar 2 Tbsp. snipped fresh chives 1/4 tsp. coarse salt 1/2 tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
  1. Dice avocado and place in a medium bowl.
  2. Add the halved cranberries, minced jalapeño, lime juice, agave nectar, chives, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Place avocado cranberry topping over the roasted turkey cutlets and serve immediately.

Tip: If using frozen cranberries, you do not need to defrost before using. Cranberries can be easily chopped by using the “pulse” setting on a food processor.

Serving Suggestion: A natural for topping turkey and other poultry dishes, and it is also delicious on chips or multigrain crackers.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
