This creamy, garlicky Avocado Aioli is a topping for a delicious Grilled Prawn Salad, but is a wonderful dip for appetizers or to use in place of salad dressing, or, as a topping for some of our light taco recipes, and even as a spread on sandwiches. Try it with a Light BLAT — a bagel thin or pita bread spread with Avocado Aioli, a few slices of turkey bacon, and fresh tomatoes with mixed greens.
