Avocado Mayo

Just a quick little number, I whipped up as a crema/dressing for another dish. Nothing overly special, but a dressing that I’ll be making again.. AKA Worth the time to jot down and blog.

From Wikipedia:

The avocado (Persea americana), a tree likely originating from south-central Mexico, is classified as a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae. The fruit of the plant, also called an avocado (or avocado pear or alligator pear), is botanically a large berry containing a single large seed. Avocado trees are partially self-pollinating, and are often propagated through grafting to maintain predictable fruit quality and quantity.

Avocados are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates of many countries, with Mexico as the leading producer of avocados in 2019, supplying 32% of the world total.

The fruit of domestic varieties has a buttery flesh when ripe. Depending on the variety, avocados have green, brown, purplish, or black skin when ripe, and may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, the fruits are picked while immature, and ripened after harvesting.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 ea Avocados Ripe, pitted, scooped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil EVOO, Good Stuff
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice Fresh Squeezed Please
  • 2 cloves Garlic Peeled, mashed
  • Hot Sauce To Taste
  • Kosher Salt To Taste
  • Ground Black Pepper To Taste
  • Herbage Optional, to Taste,, washed, rough chopped

Instructions
 

  • Combine all the ingredients in a small food processor and blend until ingredients form a paste.
  • Adjust viscosity with additional EVOO or pieces of avocado

Notes

Again a basic recipe.  One can add cilantro that has been washed, shaken dry, and chopped.  We do want any herbage added to be as dry as possible.
Thinned with oil and acid (lime or lemon juice), this will make a passable green goddess dressing. (Dropping the hot sauce, or not as is your preference)
One can vary the hot sauce, or exclude it all together to match one’s taste, or one might add fresh seeded hot peppers for that special rogue chef taste kick.
