This creamy, tangy condiment is terrific on all kinds of burgers, as a replacement for the mayo on a BLT, as a dip for vegetables, even dolloped on scrambled eggs. You can also thin it out with a bit more oil to make a salad dressing. Thanks to the lime juice and vinegar, it won't readily discolor.
Makes about 1 cup
In a food processor, combine the avocado, sour cream, vinegar, lime juice, salt and a large pinch of pepper. Pulse a few times to break up the avocado, then gradually add the oil with the motor running and process until smooth. (It should have the consistency of mayonnaise.) Transfer to a bowl, then stir in the cilantro and check the seasonings. The Avocado Spread will keep, covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.
