In Brazil, we are all about mayo. Traditionally, we serve it with lots of processed mayo and a ton of potatoes. Carrots are just for a dash of color.
This is a fun and delicious turn on Brazilian traditional Mayo: instead of potatoes, I used carrots, yam and sweet potatoes. Instead of store bought mayo, very ripe avocado, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, mustard and lime (what a difference a lime makes).
I served this recipe as a side dish at Christmas Night and waited for the "uh-ohs", but they never came! Everyone loved it - until I told them it was made out of avocados: no one could believe it was so healthy and delicious, at the same time. —Manu Alves
