very ripe Avocado from Mexico
plain, fat-free Greek-style yogurt
fresh lemon juice
ground black pepper
I used 1tbsp of fresh cilantro instead of basil, as we both love cilantro. Used a little less garlic. Was AMAZING on fish tacos!!!
I thought this was okay. I would reduce the garlic and salt by half. Both were very overpowering. As it is so salty, I am going to use it in a wrap or sandwich with fresh grilled chicken or other toppings that don't have salt and see how that works. Only change I made was using 1 tsp. of dried basil for the 1 Tblsp. of fresh. That worked fine. However, after a day in the fridge even the basil was very dominant. I definitely consider this more of sandwich or wrap spread than a dip, though, imho, with it being a thick consistency. Still prefer just a little mashed avocado on a sandwich or a simple guacamole.
Oh. My. Word! I could have eaten the entire recipe of this aioli! What would that be......376 calories plus the mini sweet peppers? I could make a meal out on this! I had a partial bag of peppers that needed to be used (hence, a shriveled pepper here and there), and this recipe complemented them perfectly. This would make a fantastic appetizer for my next party.
I love Aioli and serve it often with pork roasts as well as beef roast and prime rib. A nice change up from horseradish. Using Avocado instead of mayonnaise is wonderful on so many levels. I am a basil lover as well as garlic so whoever thought to put the two together in this Aioli is a genius.
Added some diced tomatoes. It's is great on triscuits. :)
Very good! I ate it on toast for breakfast. I used a little less garlic. This is going into the rotation. Thank you!
So... easy to make. Didn't measure the garlic carefully so a little strong. Will know to use less the next time. Will be making it again. Great to use on a sandwich, as a dip, over a salad, on a baked potato, or with mashers. or with other cooked vegetables.
Usually do not like avacado. But this recipe is good and can see myself using it in place of mayo for sandwich spread.
