Avocado-Pesto Sauce (Gluten-free, soy-free, grain-free, dairy-free)

Updated: Jan 9, 2022

So creamy and rich, yet low-carb and dairy-free, this Avocado-Pesto Sauce should be rubbed on salmon, as a base for scallops, for a salad dressing, in a slaw, drizzled over eggs, stirred into mashed potatoes ... or, in this case, tossed with tangy feta, sweet tomatoes, fresh basil, and low-carb, plant-based shirataki noodles. I would have sworn this was high-carb comfort food had I not just made it myself!
