Avocado Herb Dip

Happy St. Patty’s Day!!!

Unfortunately I’m not making any truly authentic Irish food today, as tonight I will be attending the Chris Tomlin concert in Baltimore!!! But I’m still celebrating by eating something green.

This Avocado Herb Dip is super yummy! It capitalizes on the natural creaminess of a ripe avocado.

It’s made with a mix of avocado, mayo, plain Greek yogurt, herbs, and lemon juice. I just mashed it with a potato masher to keep the consistency a bit chunky, but you could puree it in a blender or food processor to make it really smooth.

Of course the resident Irishman had to give it a try!

CRUNCH!

The dip is also great with tortilla chips, of course. It’s a nice alternative to traditional guacamole.

    Sounds delicious! My favorite green food is definitely key lime pie Yoplait yogurt! I could have chose something like green beans, broccoli, kiwi, etc but I would have been lying : )

    The best St. Patrick’s Day foods are green foods that aren’t naturally green. I guess anything could be dyed green, even Green Eggs and Ham.

  16. This dip looks and sounds incredible. You can’t go wrong with avocado and yogurt!! YUM!

    I loved this recipe! I’ve always been a fan of avocados and love guacamole, but this is SO MUCH better and healthier for you too. I doubled the recipe and let it sit overnight. I tried it with celery, which was good, but then I tried it with some original pringles and OH MAN, it was so good my husband and I finished off this whole thing in one sitting.
