Avocado+cilantro sauce

This is one of my favorites not only because I am obsessed with avocados but because

it also doubles as an uncooked sauce. I make a double batch and use it as a salad

dressing over spinach or romaine lettuce, then store the rest of it in an airtight container

in the fridge and use it during the week to spoon over veggie tacos, or over grilled fish

like halibut or seabass. Also makes a great alternative to set out instead of ranch for


- half an avocado

- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt

- 1/2 cup water (more as needed to adjust consistency)

- 1 cup cilantro leaves and stems

- 1 small clove of garlic

-one tablespoon olive oil

- 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste

- juice of one lime

- OPTIONAL: for a kick, add in a seeded serrano or jalapeño pepper

1. Pulse all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add a bit of

water if a more liquid consistency is desired.
