Fresh Avocado Dressing for Modern Tastes

Modern food fashion leans toward fresh, clean tastes which do not obscure the main ingredients. With this in mind I created this dressing. I especially did not want to add mayonnaise. An avo dressing can never be thin, but this one is "thinner" than most. It has a very clean and pure avo taste. It's excellent with salads, marvellous with fresh fried fish fillets, as well as with many other simple foods such as potato or fish cakes. Do NOT use those watery avo's: go for a large, perfectly-ripe creamy avo. We have plenty to choose from at the moment, so remember this recipe when your avo season rolls round!
