I usually keep the ingredients around the house for this favorite creation. We call this one MAYONADO. Nothing like coining your own words! So I fixed this favorite to stand in as our salad to have with our Italian Bolognese Penne Bake tonight. My husband brought home 6 avocados from the grocery store this afternoon that were discounted because they were already getting pretty ripe and one was past its prime. I knew I needed to use that one tonight!
I’ve combined mayonnaise with avocado for various purposes but never added Ranch® style flavoring to the mélange before this creation. Man, is that ever good! This dip is great on cucumber slices, but would be great for dipping cherry tomatoes, raw cauliflower, broccoli flowerets, sliced yellow squash, zucchini slices, carrot & celery sticks. It would make a tasty dip for fried chicken strips or French fries, too. The shawarma spice really adds something special and then the Ranch® seasoning………….well……takes it to a whole new level This recipe is Atkins Induction friendly and suitable for all keto diets, Primal and Paleo.
1 small avocado, peeled and pitted
6 T. my homemade Shawarma 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. Place the flesh into a blender or 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!
