California Avocado Mayo

Share:

California Avocado Mayo is a fresh, low-fat and low-sodium nutritious substitute for regular mayonnaise with 2.5 g of total fat, and all of it is “good fat.” It’s delicious and adds a beautiful gourmet touch to sandwiches, salads, appetizers and just about anything else you’d usually use mayonnaise for.

Ingredients

Serves: 2

2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
1 small garlic clove, peeled
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
2 Tbsp. sunflower oil (or other mild flavored oil)

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.

Instructions

Yields 2 Cups

  1. Combine all ingredients, except oil, in the bowl of a food processor and process for 1 minute until smooth.
  2. While continuing to process, add oil through the food processor feed tube in a slow steady stream. Once all oil is added, process for 1 more minute, until silky smooth.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Will keep for 2-3 days. If top surface discolors, lightly scrape surface with a small spoon. Mayo underneath will remain vibrant and delicious.

Serving Suggestion: Serve as a substitute for regular mayonnaise on sandwiches, in salads, for appetizers, etc.

* Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
