It’s time for Cinco de Mayo! Last year I made a delicious traditional Mexican dessert, Capirotada. YUM! This year it’s time to celebrate with avocados!

Avocados are native to South Central Mexico. Did you know botanically, they are a berry? Berry interesting! Ha! Another name for them is “alligator pear” due to their skin’s rough texture.

They’ve become more and more popular which suits me just fine. I LOVE them! So why not use them as a mayonnaise replacement. Why not, indeed!

Here’s how:

One, two, three – fresh avocado spread. It’s so good you can eat it with a spoon! Use it in any sandwich, in a salad, as a dip for crudité, or over scrambled eggs! It stays fresh for a couple of days in the fridge but I doubt it will last that long.
