Avocado Spread/Dressing

I use at least 2 avocados a week, making two separate batches. I started to use avocados to improve the health of my skin and hair in a dry climate. Ingesting more healthy fats is a great way to make your cracked skin, dry scalp and hair go away.
Avocado Spread/Dressing
1 whole ripe avocado (ripe when pressed firmly with your finger, it leaves an indent)
1/2 fresh lemon (fresh is much better than from-concentrate, and keeps the avocado spread greener, longer)
cayenne pepper, chili pepper and cumin to taste
Mash the avocado in a bowl with a fork or processor, add fresh lemon and mix to combine. Spice as you like with the suggested spices.
This creates a spread which is nice and spring-tasting on turkey burgers off the grill, or spread on cucumber slices lightly.
To create a wow-salad dressing, take 1 tsp of the spread above and mix with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and 1t more lemon juice. Mix together and sprinkle over several salads.
