    I make a "green goddess" dip/sauce/ dressing that I use in all sorts of stuff:
    1 avocado, 1 package silken tofu, garlic to taste (for me that's about 4 cloves), salt and pepper to taste. Sometimes I add tomatillo sauce or salsa as well.

    Use it as a salad dressing, or as warm and serve over sauteed veggies.

    Add some nutritional yeast, and you can use it in a casserole-type dish as a replacement for cream of mushroom soup or sour cream. I love it in scalloped yellow squash or zucchini!

    It's really good sliced and put on pizza after it's out of the oven. Your pizza can be super lower calorie and have little or no cheese and the avocado will bring richness and fat. So good.

    I like to make a quick guacamole with chopped avocado, diced onion, diced fresh hot pepper, salt, pepper, quick squeeze of lime and cilantro if you like it. That alone is good on a sandwich. If you want protein, add some chopped boiled eggs or chicken, etc. Make the guac thinner by adding stock or water and no meat and use it as a salad dressing.

    I'm not very adventurous with avocado but love it.

    I mash it, squeeze a 1/4 lime wedge into it, a sprinkle of salt and that's my simple guac.

    I cut into slices, top my toast with it, then top that with an over easy egg.

    Make into guacamole, then use it in a wrap with diced roasted chicken, lemon, cilantro and a bit of salsa.

    I use this recipe from the Smitten Kitchen blog for avocado-cucumber salad. I swap out half or all of the mayo (2 tbs) for greek yogurt.

    Dead easy leftover chicken salad.

    Some chopped up leftover roast chicken, a chopped up avocado, a jar of commercial salsa, a handful of chopped cilantro. Have it in a soft tortilla or a wrap.

    Never thought of putting avocado on top of pizza sounds yummy

    Pasta sauce. Dump a pitted and peeled avocado in the food processor with a large handful of basil leaves or some pesto and some Greek Yoghurt, plus a generous squeeze of lemon juice. Season with salt and black pepper. Whizz and stir into hot pasta! Optional add ins, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, Parmesan.

    Yum thanks

    I hesitate to call this a recipe, but I love avocado and a really good tomato chopped up and topped with olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. I'm thinking those bocconcini would be a nice addition, but I haven't tried it.

    Taco stuffed avocados are the bomb! I either use taco seasoned shredded chicken or ground turkey/ beef, then add taco toppings, cheese, taco sauce, pico, sour cream, and lettuce. It's so good!

    Vinaigrette:

    ¼ cup Avocado Oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
