TNT Avocado Cilantro Lime dressing

I concocted this yesterday, whilst trying to find the perfect dressing for my taco salad. It was quite tasty & the color was so pretty! All measurements are approximate, as I wrote it down after I'd finished making it.

jkath's Avocado Cilantro Dressing

1 haas avocado, peeled, & in pieces
2 handfuls of fresh cilantro, washed & dried
2 heaping Tbsp mayonnaise (I used canola mayo)
c. fresh lime juice
10 shakes Tapatillo hot sauce
2 Tbsp. macadamia nut oil

Put all into food processor & liquify.
Add more lime juice, if necessary for flavor. (I think I added more)

Then I added some drinking water to thin it down to "pourable" consistency.



**note: I'm going to try this sauce over some grilled chicken tonight. I have a feeling it'll be good!

Seal & refrigerate at least an hour or two before using. Shake before using.

Sweet. That's right up my alley. No macadamia nut oil on hand though, any substitute?

That sounds great. I have no idea where to find that nut oil.

That sounds really good. The nut oil adds flavor, I'm sure, but I bet it would still be quite good with any plain oil. I'm going to try it with canola

I used the mac nut oil, since it's flavor is barely there. (I didn't want to taste oil, if that makes sense)
Anyway, I have found it generally in Cost Plus World Market, and I think Williams Sonoma carries it.
But, I got lucky and found some at Marshall's(!) with an expiration date for next year. It was only $5, I think.
(and while I'm on the subject, I also found some Orange Olive Oil and Lemon Olive Oil, both with '09 expirations there for about the same price as the mac)
