Holy Guacamole!

Monday is National Guacamole Day.

You can celebrate the dip, spread or salad, which is made from avocados, by making homemade guac or you could go out to a local Mexican restaurant for some.

Make sure you post with the social media hashtag “National Guacamole Day.”

Avocados, by the way, grow on trees and while a lot of people consider them a vegetable, they are technically a fruit, like tomatoes. The fruit is native to Central America and Mexico but were first planted in Florida in 1833.

Avocados started growing in California three years later.

Salsaritas Fresh Mexican Grill is offering its reward members, with the app, FREE guacamole with their entree.
