AVOCADO MAYO (Adapted from Food.com)

Stumbled on this recipe recently and HAD to try! It replaced the usual mayo (Hellman’s always for me) with one that is so much more healthy and delicious made with avocados and olive oil. Better for you AND better tasting.

2 avocados
2 TBSP fresh lemon juice (or the best purchased one you can find)
1/2 – 1 tsp salt (to taste)
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Cut the avocados in half. Scoop out the flesh and put it into a food processor.

Add lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper and blend together.

With food processor running, add olive oil slowly. You many have to stop the machine several times to redistribute ingredients. Puree to a smooth creamy mixture.

Makes ~ 1 – 1 1/2 cups.
