t tsp olive oil
3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
3 tsp lemon juice
1tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 -3tbsp honey

To make more of a "green goddess" dressing, add more olive oil

I had it spread on warm fluffy greek pita with red onions, cukes and warm falafel.

      well, the recipe I posted reads 1 tsp..you can add more for more viscosity...the avocado adds enough for a spread, but I'd say you could use as much as you wanted to make it thinner..but try not to go over 1/4 cup!

    2. Diana - sounds AWESOME - I have avocados sitting there waiting for me....going to go try it now....thanks.

      1. This sounds absolutly fantastic! I would of never thought of using honey and avocado together but I can't wait to try. I am sadden that I just ate my last avocado in a salad I made myself last night. I guess I will have to make a trip to the store tonight!

          You can make a great smoothie with an avocado, lemon or lime zest and juice, milk or soy milk and a good squeeze of honey!

            I just had it on poached salmon. Interesting, but yummy!

            I also think it would be good on a bagel.

            I'm going to do it without the garlic and try it on cake,or ice cream!
