Adding fruit to any dish is an easy way to tickle the taste buds and add lively color. Currently in season, fresh California avocados are both delicious and versatile.

California avocados are grown in an ideal climate and their creamy taste and velvety texture are simply sublime for springtime meals.
Also, don’t be afraid to try new food pairings that play well together, like this quick and easy Avocado Cr?pe-Wrap that pairs the slightly sweet flavor of Frieda’s? French-Style Cr?pes with delicious avocados. Using ready-made cr?pes cuts your kitchen time in half, making this tasty combination great for any holiday celebration or for an everyday brunch, lunch, snack or dinner.
Fresh California Avocado Cr?pe-Wrap
11/2 cups diced Fresh California Avocados
1/2 cup diced cherry or grape tomatoes
1 tablespoon diced red onion
1/2 cup ranch-style dressing
4 to 6 Frieda’s? French-Style Cr?pes
1 cup shredded, smoked, cooked chicken or cooked, chilled crabmeat (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup prepared salsa (for garnish)
Gently toss avocados, tomatoes and onion in a medium bowl. Pour salad dressing over vegetables and toss gently to combine. Toss in chicken or crab, if desired.
To assemble, place approximately two tablespoons of the avocado mixture onto the center of a cr?pe. Fold cr?pe in half, bottom to top, with fold at bottom and slightly uneven edge at top. Roll left to right, starting from bottom left corner, to create a cone shape with opening at top. Repeat with each cr?pe. Place wraps on a serving plate. If desired, place a small dish of salsa in the center of the serving dish for dipping.
Makes 4-6 servings.
