Avocado Sage Cornbread
Jazz up your Thanksgiving cornbread with the addition of fresh avocados from Mexico!

Serve warm and drizzle with honey, if so desired.
Chocolate Pudding Cake
This creamy cake is made with avocado as a substitute for shortening.
Paleo Avocado Tuna Salad
This recipe combines all the goodness of homemade tuna salad with the health benefits of avocado, as a substitute for mayonnaise.
Pumpkin Seed Dip
Chef Kyle Rourke at Red Star Tavern in Portland, Ore., shares his recipe for Pumpkin Seed Dip, perfect for the fall months. The even better part is that it's vegan and filled with nutrients, using avocado as a substitute for sour cream. They serve the dip with housemade sesame crackers and pickled vegetables.
Avocado Caesar Salad
Avocado makes a brilliant swap for the egg and oil in this creamy Ceasar dressing. The lemon keeps the avocado from browning and the swap tastes fantastic, making this salad a healthy choice.
