Avocados go well with:
Produce: lemon, lime, onions, garlic, grapefruit, tomatoes, lettuce, kiwi, spinach, cucumber, coconut, edamame beans, strawberries, and mango
Protein: prosciutto, bacon, turkey, chicken, eggs, chickpeas, tuna, black beans, pinto beans, shellfish, and hazelnuts
Herbs, Spices & Dairy: cilantro, coriander, mint, dill, chili peppers, black pepper, chipotle pepper, nutmeg, goat cheese, mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, white cheddar, sour cream

The cool, creamy texture of avocados makes them a natural fit for lightly mashing and spreading in sandwiches and wraps. Turkey and chicken work particularly well, such as a turkey and bacon club sandwich with avocado spread between layers.
Appetizers can be pretty, tasty and healthy! These crunchy cucumber bowls filled with zesty whipped guacamole make for seriously flavourful snacking. They’re perfect for parties!
Sliced or diced, avocados go well in salads where they add a delicate contrast to crunchy lettuces, cucumbers, seeds and nuts. Try an Asian-inspired noodle salad with sliced avocado, Chow Mein noodles, thinly sliced carrots and snap peas tossed in a sesame dressing.
Try a rich and creamy avocado salad dressing as a healthier option than a mayonnaise based dressing. Drizzle it on iceberg lettuce, sliced cucumber, grated carrot, and diced cheese or on diced tomatoes as a side dish to eggs and toast on the weekend.
Combine cool cucumber and luscious avocado to create a refreshing and creamy Cucumber Avocado Soup that you can feel good about sipping on any time of year.
Of course you can never go wrong with a classic guacamole! Mash perfectly ripe avocados with lime juice and salt for a basic dip for tortilla chips. Some other guacamole additions include crushed garlic, chili powder, diced tomatoes, diced sweet red peppers and chopped green onions or finely diced red onion and sour cream. Layer it up and make a pretty, and tasty dip!
