SUMMER TIME!! That calls for all things colorful and delicious and all from your garden! < yeah, right. Okay, from A garden, that then provided that lovely produce to Kroger, which you then get to reap the benefits from 🙂
In all honestly, there hasn’t been much ‘creative cooking’ happening in my kitchen lately. We have been busy with all things outdoors and summer; including, but not limited to PALLET FURNITURE <3. We have embraced the Pinterest craze in full swing and the product is almost finished!! I did all the work, obviously, and my husband helped a little by ya’ know cutting boards, screwing screws and lifting everything. But, this was my baby. No doubt about it. But that is for another post…you came here for food.
The star of today’s post? AVOCADO. I believe there are a handful of sauces involving avocado [see at the bottom of this post] on this blog already, and each has a little twist to compliment the dish, but this beauty in front of you?
In a league of its own.
Avocado Dijon vs Mayo
I am not a mayo girl, mainly because any way you look at it (yes, even the olive oil kind) it isn’t ‘good’ for you. But, I was raised on mayonnaise, so this girl knows the appeal of that creamy layer that is undeniably one of the best layers to a good burger. The rich creaminess I have been denying myself, has left me in search for an alternative option that I loved just as much, nay, BETTER.
GUYS. Toss that Kraft lard out the window because I have discovered the source of non-mayo burger happiness! Avocado Dijon Spread to be precise.
And before you even ask, no it isn’t difficult to whip up. We are talking, throw it all in the little mini food processor and spin a few times and done. Gorgeous creamy avocado, fresh cilantro, a few spices to keep things jazzy and a dollop of Dijon and you are on your way to one rockin’ burger. No burger? I may also know that this is divine as a dip for all things you can dip. Not that I am suggesting this as a legitimate use of Avocado Dijon Spread, but you wouldn’t be the first 😉
So dreamy <3
