Avocados are so rich and delicious, and can be enjoyed in more ways than just guacamole. I love to add them to all sorts of different salads and sandwiches. One of my favorite ways to enjoy them is to add them to sandwiches in place of mayonnaise. They give a rich and creamy texture and add healthy fats and lots of nutrition. Hass avocados have nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making them a nutrient-dense food choice. You can find lots of avocado recipes through this link, from deep fried avocado slices to bacon wrapped and grilled avocado slices.

The Hass avocado board is holding a “Kick Off with Hass Avocados Recipe Contest”! And there are 2 ways to participate:

o (1) A weekly sweepstakes where we will give away a box of avocados for 14 consecutive weeks!
o (2) A Recipe Contest where the winner will win a trip to the Rose Bowl Game®!

The grand prize winner of the recipe contest will receive (for 4 people) Round trip airfare, hotel accommodations, participation in a Rose Bowl Game® Welcome Reception, admission to the “behind-the-scene” Rose Bowl Parade® decorating site, sightseeing tour of Pasadena, admission to the Rose Bowl Game® on January 2. 2012 + more!

For more information on how the winner is chosen be sure to check out the official rules on their Facebook Page.

Remember after entering your avocado recipe in this sweepstakes, you can come back and enter every week for the weekly sweepstakes for a chance to win a box of fresh hass avocados.

I have entered this recipe below in the Kick Off with Hass Avocados Recipe Contest. It’s a simple salad with oven roasted corn and chopped avocados, but has the most amazing dressing. For the dressing I combined creamy hass avocados with lime, mayonnaise and spices to make the tastiest salad dressing.

    This is the perfect side salad, or just add a little grilled chicken or beef and it would make a delicious meal too.

    What a perfect meal for the end of summer! I love avocados; I find they make vegetarian salads seem so much richer and more satisfying!
