When I was growing up in Houston, there was a wonderful restaurant in our neighborhood called Ninfa's. Our favorite sauce was the Avocado Sauce that they put on the table.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1⁄4 cup sour cream
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon minced onion
- 1 garlic clove, mashed to a pulp with 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tablespoon of minced fresh cilantro (or 1/4 teaspoon of dry)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 6 tablespoons lemon juice
- Peel the Avocado and smash to a smooth pulp. Add the remaining ingredients and blend with a wire whip. Let stand for at least an hour before serving.
- Increase to taste garlic, cilantro or pepper sauce.
Oh my goodness is this incredibly yummy! One of our favorite resturants has a creamy avocado house dressing that we LOVE and this is even BETTER! We've been eating it on tacos, salad, burritos and with chips! It's great to be able to make this fresh from scratch at home. Thanks so much for sharing! :)
I have eaten at Ninfa's restaurant many times over the years and I love their green sauce. This recipe comes close to the taste for me, but I felt it was lacking some seasoning. I added salt and a pinch or two of cumin to round out the flavor. Made for What's on the Menu tag, September, 2014.
This was posted earlier by another chef as Ninfa's Avocado Hot Sauce. This was always one of my favorites at Ninfa's. Love it.
