This creamy, zesty avocado sauce is a delicious topping for tacos. Make the sauce vegan by using vegan mayo. If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a day. Reprinted from Simply Julia by Julia Turshen with permission from the publisher.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and roughly chopped
  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise*
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • Place the avocado, cilantro, lime juice, mayonnaise, and salt in the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth. If your sauce is too thick, add water, ½ tablespoon at a time, to thin it to your desired consistency. Season to taste with more salt as needed.
  • If you don't have a food processor, place the avocado, cilantro, lime juice, mayonnaise, and salt in a medium bowl, and use a fork or potato masher to mash until the ingredients are combined. If you prefer a thinner sauce, add water, ½ tablespoon at a time, to thin it to your desired consistency. Season to taste.

Notes

*You can taste the mayo here, so make sure to use a good one. I recommend Sir Kensington's Classic Mayonnaise or Avocado Oil Mayonnaise. Vegan mayo works here too!
