Adding chef-level flavor to your meals doesn’t have to be complicated. You can use herbs and spices, a squeeze of citrus, or—my personal favorite—a sauce. In particular, you can use this creamy avocado-loaded aioli that tastes good on literally everything. I’m talking roasted veggies, salads, scrambles, and more.
Avocados From Mexico just launched AvoEatery in Dallas, Texas, and the entire menu is focused on the beloved green fruit. Aka a dream come true. While the main dishes—from Texas-sized avocado toast and grilled avo-topped zoodles—are always a win, the humble avocado aioli’s multi-use powers are seriously impressive.
“Avocado aioli is so versatile and can really give a dish an extra something special,” says David Spirito, the senior director of foodservice and culinary for Avocados From Mexico. “You can use it as a dip with veggies, pitas, and chips to make a fun appetizer or as a side dish. You can also use it to dress up your favorite sandwich (whether it’s hot or cold), add it to your breakfast or lunch, or add it to a burger. You can even use it as a base in a salad dressing. The possibilities are really endless for this simple sauce.”
To try it out for yourself—and, let’s be honest, add it to every meal you possibly can—whip up Spirito’s recipe below. Once you have a batch ready to go, you can use it all week long.
