A quick and fresh avocado sauce for dipping, drizzling and scooping!

Excellent as a dip for fries or veggie sticks, as a sauce for anything Mexican including quesadillas, burritos, nachos and tacos.

Avocado sauce

This is a great avocado sauce that I use for anything Mexican. Pictured above with Quesadillas, the other recipe I posted today.

It pairs very well with Mexican cuisine as it has a lovely crisp flavor that tempers the bold flavors of Mexican cuisine – and of course is reminiscent of our ever-favorite guacamole!

Made with avocado, sour cream or yogurt, lemon or lime, cilantro/cilantro, garlic and olive oil, I describe it as fresh and bright but he also has the rich and natural smoothness from lawyers.

How to serve avocado sauce

Quick and easy to make using your food processor, the other advantage of this avocado sauce is that it stays green for days and days! In the photo below on day 3, the taste is just as green and fresh as on day 1.

Enjoy! –Nagi x

Health benefits of avocado

An avocado sauce is a much healthier option than a dip loaded with mayonnaise! Avocado is packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and healthy fats! One of the few natural products that contains a significant amount of monounsaturated fatty acids which are good fats known to lower cholesterol and promote heart health.

With nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, their potential health benefits include improving digestion, good for your heart, lowering cholesterol, lowering the risk of depression, and protecting against cancer.

The lawyer is also good for weight loss because it’s high in fiber and (good!) fats that will keep you feeling full longer. You’re much better off loading a salad with avocado than cheese, or smashing avocado on your morning toast than peanut butter! But since they contain 77% fat, they should be eaten in moderation.
