Walnut Avocado Yum Sauce

Prep Time 5 min Cook Time 5 min
Yields 3/4 cup


  • half of one avocado
  • 1/2 cup chopped, raw walnuts
  • 1 cup lightly packed, fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed, fresh basil leaves
  • 1 large clove garlic or 2 small cloves
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • scant 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


Add all ingredients to food processor except water and olive oil. Pulse 10 times to get ingredients moving. Add olive oil, and pulse 5 more times. Then begin adding 1/2 cup water, while fully processing. Stop processing once combined and mostly smooth, about 15 seconds. If you like the thickness, you can leave it, or add up to 1/4 cup more water.
