Summer Holidays Bring Burgers With Fresh California Avocado

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, as Americans work, travel and dedicate themselves to the pleasures of summer dining, there’s always a burger at the end of the trail.

While burgers are as varied as the customers who consume them, a finishing touch of Fresh California Avocado enhances any version with smooth texture, summery flavor and seasonal appeal.

While many Americans are burger classicists–and there’s no denying the appeal of a Double Guacamole Burger–the burger is truly a creative platform for summer menus. For the lighter appetite, consider menuing M Café’s Seared Tuna Burger with Avocado or a Avocado Chicken Slider. And, satisfy vegan and vegetarians customers with grain-based Farro Burgers with Sliced Avocado.
