Guala-comma Sauce

There's a Betty Grable movie called Moon Over Miami where kooky co-star Charlotte Greenwood woos bellboy Jack Haley with her fantastic "gualacomma sauce." For years Juiceboy and I referenced the gualacomma sauce, but we have no clue if it's guacamole, or something else.
In the effort to find a replacement for mayonaise and aoili, here's the result:

Fleagirl's Gualacomma Sauce, take one:

2 Haas avocados
Juice of two limes
1/3 C olive oil
1 garlic clove (or half of one if it's big)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Mash the mix up a bit and then blend it in a food processor or blender until it's absolutely smooth. Taste for seasonings and thickness. It should be the consistency of mayonaise--nicely spreadable. Use on sandwiches, crackers, or with vegetables. Nice for backyard barbeques too: hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.
