Avocado Mayonnaise/Dressing

This avocado mayonnaise makes a wonderful rich and unctuous dressing, all with no egg in sight and a darn sight tastier than a shop-bought egg-free mayo. The lime tang gives a real Mexican vibe which I love, but if you rein it in the resulting gorgeous gloop makes a perfect mayonnaise to be used in sandwiches, salads etc.

This recipe was inspired by Thomasina Miers ‘Mexican Food at Home‘ as the dressing for a salad, and it does work wonderfully for that purpose, but I think it rocks as a mayo alternative, and doesn’t that avocado colour look wonderful? Just like your grandmother’s bathroom suite back in the day!
