Avocado lovers unite! These tasty little fruits have been on sale as of late. I have been loading my grocery cart full. Avocado toasts, guac… you know the usual suspects are on regular rotation at the Peel household. But Mr. Peel’s favorite is our make ahead four-ingredient avocado sauce. The lime juice keeps it from browning so I can make a big batch and use it all week. Not bad for five minutes worth of work.
It is paleo, Wahls and AIP compliant so everyone can enjoy! We thin out the avocado sauce to use as a dressing on our salads. Drizzle it over roasted veggies. Make these awesome Sweet Potato Nachos with Shredded Beef. Slather it on a sandwich. Or warm it up (just slightly to keep the olive oil from oxidizing) to serve with grilled chicken or fish.
Basically, our four-ingredient avocado sauce can do anything. Okay maybe not create world peace but almost anything.
How to Make Four-Ingredient Avocado Sauce
Put in a food processor or blender. One minute on high or until creamy. Done. Whew that was a lot of work.
Add water to thin it out to use as a salad dressing. Using more olive oil creates an overwhelming olive-y flavor that the Peels do not find pleasing. Four-ingredient avocado sauce will store for up to a week in the fridge. Make a double batch or try one of other flavorful no-cook sauces!
Now that you have the best sauce ever, what are you going to do with it? Let us know in the comments. Brownie points for the best idea!
