My mayo substitute on sandwiches

June 21st, 2012 No Comments

My yummy combo = substitute for mayo

A ripe avocado can be squished up to make a creamy and healthy spread on your sandwiches.  For extra flavor, I add a little bit of pesto.  It’s a trick I’ve been using since college and got worn out with it around 2004.  Thankfully the combo reappeared in my head while shopping for a picnic the other day.

If you like the flavor, you can also make a more chunky version as a dip. Mash up 2 avocados and add:

  • A dash of good quality EVOO
  • Chopped basil
  • Finely chopped garlic (1-2 cloves)
  • Fresh grated parsean cheese
  • Fresh ground salt and pepper
  • A little squeeze of lemon

Serve with pita chips or sweet potato chips.  It’s a pleasant change from guacamole.
