  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 tbs. white vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup lightly packed fresh basil

  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil


Halve the avocado, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a blender. Add the vinegar, garlic, basil, parsley, and salt. Secure the lid and blend until smooth.
Remove the lid plug, then continue blending on low speed while very slowly pouring the oil through the lid opening. Purée until smooth.
