A chameleon of the produce aisle, the avocado can be used in everything from dressings and smoothies to salads, sandwiches, dips and baked goods. But if you're only using them for guacamole (no judgement here), we've got more than 20 inspiring avocado recipes for you to try.

Avocado facts

1. Despite their luxurious and creamy texture, one avocado boasts more than 9 g of fibre—more than any other fruit.

2. Half an avocado has more potassium than a banana and lots of brain-protecting folate.

3. Avocados also have the mono- and polyunsaturated “good” fats that are recommended as part of a healthy diet.

Green goddess egg salad sandwich

This richly herbed sandwich is so good, you'll want to eat it every week! Bonus: Wrap each egg salad sandwich in parchment paper to keep it from getting soggy (it also makes it easy to grab and take to go if you need something on the fly). Get our green goddess egg salad sandwich recipe.

What is ceviche?

This Latin American dish is prepared by “cooking” raw fish in citrus juice. The acid in the juice alters the protein in fish, in a process similar to cooking. This dish is prepared without heat, so always use the freshest fish possible.
