The richness of the avocado makes this dish taste amazing. Feel free to add more or less olive oil for your preferred consistency. For best results refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Enjoy and feel guilt-free (unless you eat the whole bowl, which might just happen). It is easy to tweak this recipe to anything you like; add cooked chicken, or stir in some tuna, add some more veggies, or take some out that you don't like or have on hand.

a nice change from remade pasta salad dressing and a great way to use up a bag of avacados. Really enjoyed this even w/o dill

This recipe was really good! My husband and I love avocado and this sauce uses just enough avocado perfectly! I did not use any substitutions and it was perfect. Just the right amount of creamy, crunchy, with a zing from the limes! Yummy!!

Not too bad. We added some feta cheese to add a little more saltiness to it. I also added more garlic powder, about another tsp.
