It’s a good idea to brush a little oil on the cut side of a California Avocado before grilling. They are also delicious in a host of other entrée recipes, from stove top to oven-baked to multi-cooker preparation.

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
