Avocado mayonnaise? Move outta the way... I'm hungry!A Diet Delight

To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, let’s make Cinco de Mayo-nnaise (sorry for the cheesy play on words… it’s what I do).

I did find evidence of some diet foods in mom’s cookbook. This was one of them.

This recipe caught my eye more than once as I flipped through mom’s recipes. So let’s let ‘er roll! Who doesn’t love the taste of avocado?

Let’s Go, Avocado

i. ingredientsavocado mayonnaise ingredients (the bread's hanging out for the sammy party)

1 | small 10- to 12-ounce ripe avocado, peeled and seed removed
3 tablespoons | lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon | salt
1 teaspoon | peeled garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon | mayonnaise
2 tablespoons | water or chicken broth
3 or 4 drops | Tabasco brand sauce

ii. what to dogetting ready to make my blt sammy

1. Cut the avocado into small pieces and place in an electric blender (or immersion blender) with remaining ingredients.

2. Cover and blend until creamy and smooth.

3. Makes 1 cup; ¼ cup of the mayo is 114 calories.

The sauce may also be made by mashing garlic to a paste with the salt then mashing all ingredients together with a fork. Chunkier.

While the serving suggestions pair the mayo with broiled fish steaks and steamed mixed vegetables, this mayo *has* to be great on a BLT sandwich or chicken sandwich. Diet, “sm-iet!”

To make the BLT Sammy: Toast your favorite bread, top with avocado mayo, tomato, lettuce and your favorite bacon.  ♥ ♥ ♥
