Yessssss, Avocado Bacon Aioli for the win!!! Could it get any better?! 🙂
We seriously LOVE this quick and delicious avocado dressing at our house. We put it on everything from burgers, fish tacos, to skillet dinners, and it’s also fabulous served as a dip!
Technically this is not a “true” aioli (since an aioli is mayonnaise based and uses eggs), but the creamy texture and consistency of this dressing is so aioli-like that it’s stolen the title!
So, whether you’re making this for burger night, as a dip with chips, or for your Taco-Tuesday extravaganza- enjoy!!
