Cilantro Avocado Mayo On Salmon Burgers…
Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs. The flavor will take most any dish to a new level. Every year I grow some in my garden, I usually end up killing it but it doesn’t stop me from trying.
I use mayo, but it is not my favorite thing, and don’t even get me started on my dislike for Miracle Whip. However, if I doctor mayonnaise up with other flavors it is not too bad, so when I found this recipe I was excited. The mix of flavors makes a nice cream sauce that pops on your taste buds!
I did not put in a measurement forthe avocado. I start with 2 tablespoons of rough chopped avocado, adding if I need to. The reason is to start small, is you just want a taste of avocado, if you add too much at one time, you might as well loose the mayo and make guacamole.
I would also suggest you make the mayonnaise a few hours ahead of serving if you can. This will give the flavors a chance to marry.
