AVOCADO SALAD DRESSING

1 large avocado peeled, mashed
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp.garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper

2-3 drops hot sauce
Mix together and refrigerate several hours to blend flavors.
Wish I was there too! That sounds great

Do you leave the seed in any portion that's left over to keep it from going brown?
My pleasure I just love avo's!!!!

I wrap my leftover avocado halves in plastic wrap. If the wrap has direct contact with the avo it doesn't go brown so quickly.
Not that we have leftovers very often

I've been knows to go to a nearby grocery store and purchase an avacado or two for my work lunch. People around here look at me like I'm nuts. Don't care though. They may be right. But I do love avocados, especially with a touch of lime juice and Tobasco.

You're not nuts, the people who stare are
Avocado is great with just salt, pepper, lemon or Tabasco in any combination!

I just put one in my lunch...I should chop it and put it in the tomatillo sauce I am taking, but odds are I will just eat it with some Himalayan Pink Salt and a spoon!

You should get yourself one of these Himalayan Salt Blocks, Himalayan Salt Plates, Himalayan Salt Cooking, Himalayan Pink Salt
Getting one or two, one for cooking and one for a plate, is still on my wish list.
