This is a condiment with plenty of substance; like mayo, it's thick enough to stay where it belongs unlike other condiments that will soak in or slide off. The flavors mix together in a way that is different from guacamole or other avocado condiments. And, it freezes well, so it's a great use for avocados before they pass their peak.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 medium or 2 small cloves garlic – or to your taste
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar or lemon/lime juice
optional additions – such as fresh herbs, hot peppers like fresh jalapeno, cayenne or chipotle powder, black pepper, mustard, horseradish
Slice the avocado in half, scoop the flesh into a blender, and compost the skin and pit.
Add olive oil, garlic, salt, and apple cider vinegar and blend until smooth and creamy.
Stir or blend in optional additions.
Spread on sandwiches, use as a base for salad dressing or dips
