You moved to Southern California to be close to the avocado trees. You feel insulted when the guy at Chipotle asks if you want guac on your burrito. "Yes, I know it's extra, now pile it on!" You know that your abuela's family recipe is the best, and make it by the pound. If this is you, here are 9 ways to serve avocados on your wedding day—the ripe way!
