 Memorial Day Menu with California Avocados

Memorial Day weekend is a time for remembrance and celebrating those who gave their lives to our country. And what brings people together better than food? This weekend,  surround yourself with friends, family and the beautiful California scenery.  And finally, break out the grill that’s been yearning to be used. 

For Memorial Day weekend, give your grill what it really wants: the opportunity to get fired up and deliver amazing burgers to be topped, filled and accompanied by our favorite green fruit — California Avocado. 

Here’s our menu guaranteed to please your friends, family and neighbors and to celebrate the people who make today and every day special. 

A Memorial Day Menu

First on the list, California Avocado Turkey Burgers Filled with Mushrooms and Endless Umami Flavor. The title says it all; this burger is bursting with flavor. Toppings such as zesty arugula, juicy tomato and creamy guacamole take this burger to the next level of yumminess. 


The second grill favorite on our list: the California Avocado Blue Burger. 

Blue cheese, sriracha mayo and California Avocado — has there ever been a more delicious trio? Place this trio atop this delightful burger for a taste bud treat. 


We’ve covered the white and red meats, and now we have something for the vegetarians, but it’s not a veggie; it’s a fruit. 

Grilled California Avocados are one of our favorite summer entrées. For your get-together, create a Grilled Stuffed California Avocado Bar!  Toppings can range from savory, with black bean and corn pico, to sweet, with strawberries and balsamic vinegar.


And for décor? Stick to the American flag to honor those who gave their lives for our country.
