It’s a marinade, it’s a dressing, it’s Super-sauce!!
Who doesn’t love efficiency in the kitchen? So if you could spend a few minutes making one thing that could be used all week in several different ways, wouldn’t you be all for it? I sure am!
Take this sauce for example… it’s a guacamole you’re going to love dipping into, it’s a sauce to dress up some roast or grilled chicken, it’s a marinade to flavor fish or tofu, and finally, if you thin it out a little, it’s a dressing to dress up salads, from greens to veggies.
As I am prone to say at times like this..”that’s a lot of bang for your buck”. And speaking of bucks, avocados seem to be plentiful now and the price is right. Seems like the situation is just begging you to make this sauce/dip/dressing right now. What are you waiting for?
MULTI-PURPOSE GUACAMOLE SAUCE
Yield: Makes about 1 cup. Adjust quantities to make more.
- 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. ground cumin (according to taste)
- 1/8 tsp. ground red pepper, or dash hot sauce
- 1 ripe peeled avocado, seeded and coarsely mashed
This couldn’t be easier…..put mashed avocado in a small bowl, add everything else to it, and stir to combine.
Flavors will blend if you make it about an hour ahead of use time. Cover and refrigerate till needed.
