Avocado and Salmon Sale: May 2

Making guacamole for the Cinco de Mayo weekend? Here’s a one-day sale to save on avocados, and salmon too…

I could easily eat an avocado a day (they’re supposed to be healthy fat, right?) and a bowl of guacamole doesn’t last long in this house, between me and Mr Cheap battling it out with our tortilla chips. And did you know that if you put an avocado stone in water for a few days then plant it, it makes quite a pretty houseplant?

Anyhoo… as an avocado advocate, I was pleased to hear about this one-day Whole Foods Market sale on Wednesday May 2, 2012.

Organic Hass Avocados are on sale at 4 for $5 (saving $1.24 on each avocado). It’s good timing for the Cinco de Mayo weekend if you choose avocados that are not too ripe already, although maybe they’re selling them off because they are ripe – so you’ll take your chances there. Oh dear, you’ll just have to eat them immediately 😉  

Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is also on sale at $9.99 per pound (saving $5 a pound). I’m not sure what you’ll do with that;  my favorite way to cook salmon is to smother it with pesto and bake it in foil, but I guess it’s grilling season!

I’d usually give you a sale web link but I got this info in an email from Whole Foods, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. You don’t need any coupons, just turn up at the participating Whole Food Market stores in Albuquerque:

The sale is ONLY on Wednesday May 2, 2012, while supplies last.

    Trish, thanks for asking, but I don’t know that it’s exactly a recipe. I just take salmon steaks and spread a couple of generous spoons of pesto all over each one. I usually make my own pesto in the blender (so much cheaper! And I use fresh basil so it’s fragant) but store-bought is fine too. Then rest each steak on its own piece of aluminum foil, making sure there’s enough foil to fold up overhead into a loose little bag, with a few inches of space at the top of the fish. Not tightly wrapped to the fish. Seal that foil envelope/bag round the edges so the juices stay in but there’s a few inches of airspace around the fish, and put it in the hot oven at about 350 degrees for 20 to 30 mins, till the salmon is cooked. Let me know if you do it!
