Avocado Mousse

by

Yield: Serves 8.

A cool summer salad that looks pretty and tastes terrific.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (3 ounces) lime gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups mashed ripe avocado (3 small)
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1 small lemon or 1 large lime
  • 6 sprigs parsley, finely cut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sour cream

Instructions:

Dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water and cool until syrupy. Combine remaining ingredients in a blender. Whirl until smooth -- only a few seconds. Add cooled gelatin and blend for a few seconds more. Pour into an oiled mold and refrigerate until firm. Turn out onto a bed of lettuce, and garnish as desired.
