Avocado Sauce/Dressing/Dip/Spread, you decide

Updated: Aug 15, 2022

To make this recipe you don't have to worry about how ripe the avocado is. Good news! Yes, you don't have to wait days for them to be super soft, and if you have super ripe avocados you can use them too. And best of all, it's ready in no time and lasts several days in the fridge, although it's so tasty that I can't assure you that it will last long. I kept a small amount of the sauce in the freezer. I want to test the flavor, texture and color after defrosting, so in a few weeks I’ll let you know the results. You can add this avocado cream as a dressing for your salads, to spread on sandwiches and wraps, as a dip, or even to add a little hot sauce and use it as a side spicy sauce. It is very important that you add enough lemon, so it does not oxidize, keeping the nice green color with a very rich citrus taste. Fresh herbs also help to intensify the final color. If you are looking to add or hide vegetables to your recipes in general this sauce is perfect to add fresh spinach when you are blending it, it will add a color and will not change the flavor. Let me know how it turned out for you and what you ate it with.
