Avocado Fetabasil Aioli

Ingredients:
1 large ripe Haas avocado
4 oz. feta cheese crumpled
1/2 c. mayonnaise
2 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 c. fresh basil, chopped
zest of one lime
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
4 oz extra virgin olive oil
4 oz water, as needed

Directions:
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.
