Shrek Sauce

11 Oct

Sometimes giving things a creative and yes, even gross names inspires little ones to try something new.  Shrek Sauce is nothing more than an avocado dip or spread. With a few variations to the recipe we enjoy this sauce as a sandwich spread or as an alternative to guacamole on burrito/taco night.

This is all you need! Of course adjust ingredients to suit your sized family or
occasion.
2 ripe avocado’s
1 Roma (Plum) tomato
3-4 Tbsp mayo (we used light)
garlic powder to taste
Slice each avocado in half and give the pit a good whack with the knife, give it a twist and the pit should come right out.
Scrape out the flesh of the avocados into a bowl and add the mayo. This is
a smooth sauce so I am using my emulsion blender. You
can use a hand mixer, potato masher, and if ripe enough, a fork.
Mix away until silky smooth.

                                                                               Finely dice the tomato and it and the garlic powder to
                                                   the bowl. I used about a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder but use as
                                                   much or as little as you like.

Serve with chips, spread on a tortilla, or use it as a sandwich spread.
*To use as a sandwich spread I use just the avocado, tomato and mayo.
