4 oz water, as needed

To prepare the Avocado Fetabasil Aioli, combine the avocado, feta cheese, mayonnaise, garlic, basil, lime zest, lime juice, salt and pepper into a food processor or blender, and blend until smooth and creamy (scrape down sides and continue to blend).  Once creamy, slowly drizzle in the olive oil as you continue to blend.  The consistency should be a bit thinner than a mayonnaise so add some of the water to thin, as needed, while you continue to blend.  Place the mixture into a 3 squeeze bottles (8 to 10 oz size) and refrigerate until time to use.
