  1. 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.
  2. 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! :)
  3. This was posted earlier by another chef as Recipe #225134. This was always one of my favorites at Ninfa's. Love it.
  4. This is very good but it was very lemony. I used 2 avocados to try to tone down the lemon. I will make this again but add less lemon. Very quick and easy to make. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
  5. 10 stars! Fabulous. I will never again make guacamole. This is soooo good. Very light and tangy and great on anything as well as with chips. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!! This is going in my Favorites of 2009.
