Nothing like coining your own words!  I’ve read recipes for mayonnaise with avocado added to it before but have never taken the plunge and tried it until today.  When I made my turkey shawarma wraps for lunch today, I decided to blend the shawarma spice, slices of avocado I was planning to put into the pita pockets, and the onion into a smooth paste with some of my fresh batch of homemade mayo.  Mmmmm.  It was quite delicious on the turkey wraps!!  It was getting praise when I served it again on the ground beef patties I made for supper tonight.  It is good on cucumber slices or with cherry tomatoes.  But the biggest surprise of all is that it is super, DUPER good spooned over steamed vegetables….all sorts of them!  The shawarma spice really adds something special!  This recipe is Atkins Induction friendly.

VARIATION:  Add a little chopped cilantro and minced, seeded jalapeno.

INGREDIENTS:

1 small avocado, peeled and pitted

6 T. homemade mayonnaise (I use 1 whole egg to 1 c. oil)

1 tsp. Shawarma spice blend

1 oz. yellow or white onion

Dash salt

few drops lemon or lime juice to prevent discoloring of the avocado

DIRECTIONS:  Peel and seed the avocado.  Place the flesh into a blender or processor.  Pulse until it it smooth.   Serve any of the above mentioned ways or get creative and think of new applications for this delightful condiment!
