Peel and chop fine the shallot and garlic and macerate in 2 to 3 tablespoons of white wine vinegar, a big squeeze of lemon, and a smaller one of lime.

Add the anchovy, rinsed, boned, and very finely copped or mashed, and the flesh of the avocado. Mash together with a fork. Whisking or stirring with a wooden spoon, gradually incorporate the olive oil and cream – as if you were making a thin mayonnaise.

Use about two parts olive oil to one part cream; the avocado with smoothly absorb up to 3/4 cup of olive oil and nearly 1/2 cup of cream. Flavor with the herbs.

Taste and adjust the seasoning to your tase; the dressing probably will need salt and pepper.
