Have a favorite avocado recipe -- besides guacamole? You could win up to $5,000 in McCall's California Recipe Contest.
Recipes may be submitted in the following categories: appetizer, salad, main course, side dish, dessert or sandwich -- anything but guacamole -- and must use California avocados. Dishes will be judged on originality, taste, appearance, ease of preparation, general appeal and creativity.
Last year's grand-prize winner was Salad with Fluffy Avocado Dressing, a dish that combines asparagus, pears, green beans and avocados topped with a Dijon dressing.
