Beyond guacamole: McCall's seeks new avocado recipes

May 08, 1991|By Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

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.

There's no limit on the number of entries. All original recipes must be submitted by May 25; entries cannot have been sent previously or published by any other magazine. Entrants should be at least 21 years old.

To enter, send the recipe along with a 3-by-5-inch piece of paper that includes printed name, address, ZIP and phone number to McCall's California Avocado Recipe Contest, P.O. Box 1581, Grand Central Station, New York City, N.Y. 10169.
