Here around the house we call this concoction MAYONADO. Nothing like coining your own words! I’ve read recipes for mayonnaise with avocado added to it before but have never used homemade mayo or taken the plunge with the addition of Ranch® style flavorings added to the picture. Man, is this ever good! It is good on cucumber slices, with cherry tomatoes, raw cauliflower, broccoli flowerettes, sliced yellow squash or zucchini, carrots and celery celery. Would make a tasty dip for chicken strips or “fries”, too. In addition, this makes a GREAT dressing for a taco salad or a nice green salad if you add a dash of cream to thin it out a bit! This recipe is Atkins Induction friendly.
1 small avocado, peeled and pitted
6 T. my homemade mayonnaise
1 oz. yellow or white onion
few drops lemon or lime juice to prevent discoloring of the avocado
1 T. my Ranch Dressing Powder Blend
DIRECTIONS: Peel and seed the avocado. Using a spoon, scoop the flesh out and put into a blender or foo processor with all the other ingredients. Pulse until it it smooth. Serve any of the above mentioned ways or get creative and think of new applications for this delightful concoction!
