Avocado Aioli

Avocados provide the only source of oil in this extra flavorful mayonnaise substitute. The color is a beautiful pale green and the taste is bold. Spread the Aioli on whole grain toast for a club sandwich, toss with pasta and steamed vegetables, dollop onto grilled fish fillets or burgers, slather over chicken breasts or use as a dip for fresh vegetables. Covered tightly, it will keep in the refrigerator for several days – if it lasts that long!

Ingredients: 
  • 2 Hass Avocados from Chile
  • 1 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley or cilantro
  • 2 lemons or limes, zested and juiced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt to taste
