avocado cucumber puree

i would eat this- make this- even if the husband's mouth wasn't wired shut.

in the blender:
1 avocado
1/2 cucumber
1/2 yellow bell pepper
1/4 cup plain yogurt (i use soy)
juice of 1/2 a lime
1 TBS olive oil
1 tsp red chili paste
1/2 clove garlic
water/milk(plain soy milk) to thin the mixture in the blender. i started with a 1/4 cup and probably used 1/2 cup total.

i blended this up for the husband who had requested something green in his liquid diet. we were both a little skeptical of how this would come out because it sounds kind of weird but it was good. seriously good. if it was thicker i would dip chips in it. as it was it was good as sauce on a burrito and would be excellent as a dressing on a salad. i could have put in more lime and some cilantro, but i was holding back a bit for the husband's sake. he thinks i put too much lime in stuff anyway.
