I saw that recommended on some show today (either The Doctors or The Chew). I never thought of trying it for that but maybe I will if I end up with something for a sandwich again.

I love avocado! I'll definitely have to try that in tuna instead of mayo because it sounds delicious!

every time I read Avocado I think of guacamolli and I don't like that. Maybe I will have to branch out and try.
There is a girl that was in my sons young 5 class last year that would sit and eat an avocado with a spoon right out of the shell!!!! I was IMPRESSED.

I have a muffin recipe that subs avocado for butter or oil. Avocado is excellent in baked goods if they're dark or if the green color won't matter. (The muffins I make are lime-flavored, and I've done it with citrus-flavored cookies, too.) It's still not "healthy" because of the sugar, but it adds fiber, vitamins, and healthy fat to what would otherwise be complete junk food.

Love love love avocado~! I have used them as a mayo substitute in the past and really enjoy it. Love the suggestion to try neufchatel cheese instead of mayo as well - I love that stuff!

Plain Greek yogurt is something else you could try as a mayo substitute.

I love avocados and use them a lot. I still use butter, but do substitute it for my mayo

I generally prefer (grass-fed cow) butter for it's balanced omega 6:omega 3 ratio (nearly 1:1) over avocado's very high omega 6: omega 3 ratio (nearly 17:1).

For a long time now I have used avocados as a substitute for butter and mayo on my bread or in my tuna fish. I was wondering if anybody else does this or has any other suggestions for good substitutes I could try.
