cilantro mayo

Cilantro Mayo - spices things up a bit!

Time to jazz up our crudite platter with new flavor, so I adapted the Cilantro Mayonaise from the original South Beach Diet book.  (The herb flecks and green color are reminiscent of our Divine Dressing - but the flavor is completely different!) This bright and spicy condiment pairs nicely with an Asian or Southwestern inspired dinner.  Watch those veggies disappear!

Cilantro Mayo
adapted from the South Beach Diet Book

Blitz the following ingredients in your food processor:

1 clove of garlic
1/4 c Greek Yogurt
1/4 c Mayonaise
1 avocado
juice of 1 lime
1 t soy sauce
1/2 t cumin
1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed (keep if you want it super spicy)
3/4c cilantro leaves, loosely packed
1 scallion, roughly chopped

Tip:  I reserve 3 T of the dip for later.  Whisk with 1/4 c buttermilk for salad dressing!  

Fantastically fast to assemble!
