I am on this quest to make my own Mexican style food lately. Not sure why but it could have something to do with the nice weather we have been having lately. I have made it one of my summer goals to find and perfect a recipe to make my own salsa. I came across Rick Bayless website (who is well known for his Mexican food) which has a bunch of different types of salsas to try.
I did try to make his recipe for Salsa Mexicana which was good but I think I need to try it again with really fresh ripe tomatoes from my garden. With the leftover cilantro I had I made this recipe I also find out his website for Avocado-Cilantro Mayonnaise.
1/2 cup top-quality mayonnaise
1 avocado, pitted, flesh scooped from the skin
1/4 cup (loosely packed) roughly chopped cilantro
In a food processor, combine the mayonnaise, avocado and cilantro. Pulse until mayo and avocado are thoroughly combined. Taste and season with salt, usually about 1/4 teaspoon.
Review: I am so in love with this mayo it isn't funny. It is another one of those easy to make recipes since it only has 3 ingredients on the list and you throw it all in the blender together. The taste reminded me little bit of guacamole and the color is just so pretty. It will be awesome on a sandwich...I have to go out and get some cold cuts now to try it out with. I also wonder if I could use plain yogurt instead of the mayo to make it a little bit healthier. This one is a keeper!
