I am a tiny bit obsessing over this Creamy Avocado Sauce. Okay fine, I am a lot obsessing over it. It's really simple - just avocado, lime juice, plain yogurt, and a pinch of salt. It doesn't sound like much, but don't underestimate this sauce. It is so good. So good that I want to put it on everything, and use it as a dip, and just make it and eat with a really big spoon.
The sauce is super creamy, hence the name Creamy Avocado - but I want to emphasize just how lovely that smooth, creamy sauce is once again. It has a light, fresh flavor with just a hint of lime and it would really taste good on so many things. Perfect with grilled chicken or summer veggies, nice as a dip, delicious as a taco sauce, and certainly a really perfect thing to toss with pasta. Seriously, you must try the Creamy Avocado Sauce!
And if I haven't convinced you yet, I've got this recipe here that is a delicious, simple summer dinner recipe to try. This Creamy Avocado Fettuccine with Sauteed Garlic Beef is perfect summer fare. It's quick, with just a few ingredients, and is an oven-free recipe, which is a necessity in this hot middle of summer weather right now. And did I mention Sauteed Garlic Beef? Because if the creamy avocado pitch didn't grab you, the sauteed garlic beef really should. It's eight cloves of garlic chopped and sauteed with tender strips of beef sirloin. Oh so good!
I know this sounds like a PR pitch for pasta . . . and I guess it kind of is. This pasta deserves the attention. I'm working for the pasta now. It's that good. Recipe adapted from Clean Eating (July 2011)

recently tried a pasta with caramelized onion and yogurt sauce, and it was so creamy but healthy feeling and i loved it! also, i'm a garlic fiend, and i'm giddy with the fact that there's 8 cloves of garlic in here (:
Caramelized onion and yogurt sauce sounds amazing! I need to try it! Hope you enjoy this one too - the garlic is lovely.
