**Violet Mustard is specialty mustard from France made with mustard and grape juice, available online and at some specialty food stores. If Violet mustard is not available substitute a coarse white wine Dijon mustard and use grape juice instead of apple juice. If desired add a few drops of red and blue food coloring to make the pretty violet color.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
