Basil-Avocado Spread

Basil-Avocado Spread

I found inspiration for creating a new recipe after enjoying a late lunch at a new hot spot café in LA, while visiting friends there this past weekend. There are several elements to this new recipe idea, so I will post bits & pieces as I make them & then eventually it will all come together in the final result!

I must say…this avocado spread turned out phenomenal. I love it so much I just might have to throw my jar of mayo out & give that junk up for good. It’s best used as a spread on your favorite sammy or as a dip for freshly baked fries. Stay tuned….more to follow!
