    Scoop flesh from avocados into bowl of a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth, leaving visible specks of green from herbs and scallion. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for several days. To keep avocado from turning brown when storing, place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the sauce so no air can get to it, then cover with a lid.
