“Sagebrush is a very fair fuel, but as a vegetable it is a distinguished failure. Nothing can abide the taste of it but the jackass and his illegitimate child the mule.”
-Mark Twain, Roughing It
_ _ In the 20th century the avocado has been hailed as one of many “superfoods.” They get less super as they’ve been sitting in your fridge for over a week and you have to pick around the brown spots… When in need of a recipe to use up that borderline disgusting produce you’ve allowed to go bad, this is a perfect solution! You can use it as a salad dressing, or a sandwich spread– but either way, get some vegetables in you, you disgusting Americans. Even if you do pair it with excessive bacon… like this disgusting American.
1/2 an Avocado, skin removed and cut into chunks
1 Green Onion, chopped
6 tbsp Greek Yogurt (or 3 tbsp yogurt, 3 tbsp mayo)
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp Honey
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
Salt and Pepper to taste
2-3 tsp Poppy Seeds (optional)
1. Combine all the ingredients except the olive oil and poppy seeds in a blender and mix until combined and smooth.
2. At this point the dressing will be quite thick- if you want to keep it that way, don’t add the olive oil, other wise add the oil one tablespoon at a time until the dressing is a consistency that you like.
3. Stir in the poppy seeds by hand.
Serving ideas: BLT salad (lettuce, tomato, bacon crumbles and more avocado bites)
