Dietitian's tip: Avocado, also known as the alligator pear, is high in monounsaturated fat and a good source of lutein, an antioxidant that may protect vision. This mixture is a great dressing for mixed green salads and is a good topping for fish or chicken.

- 2 teaspoons chopped onion
- 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed
