Avocado in sandwiches is a well-loved combo for a reason: it’s a great topping and adds that signature bright green color. Just look at this Green Goddess Griller from Jennifer Rose Rossano – how can we resist a sandwich that looks that good? This Smashed White Bean Avocado and Basil Sandwich from Liz Martone will be an amazing lunch, and when you pack this Tempeh Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Avocado Grilled Cheese from Zsu Dever, everyone will want one too. For a new and tasty combo, try this Nut Butter, Avocado and Jelly Sandwich from Avocaderia by Alessandro Biggi, Francesco Brachetti and Alberto Gramigni!

For a lighter meal, avocado makes the perfect addition to salads with any variety of ingredients! It adds a little healthy fat to make the salad more filling, and also that amazing creamy texture! Try this Avocado Kale Chili Salad from Rachael Campbell for a little spice, or Daniela Modesto‘s Arugula and Strawberry Salad with Cayenne Lemon Vinaigrette for a great fruity flavor. For a refreshing but deep roasted flavor, check out this Roasted Corn and Avocado Salad from Nita Ragoonanan!

3. Sauces

The aioli in this Multi-Vegetable Paella and Avo Aioli from Happy Food by Bettina Campolucci Bordi or the pesto in this Linguine with Mushroom and Avocado Pesto from Maryke Wylde would go well on anything.
