1–1/2 to 2 ripe avocados*
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (juice from half a lemon)
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 garlic clove
2 green onions, white part only**
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon fine grey sea salt***
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Transfer dip to a nice clear glass jar/bowl/dish and serve or refrigerate until ready to eat.
Decorate with reserved chopped onion greens. Enjoy with salads, rice dishes, crudités or with crackers and chips!
The Avocado Dip will keep in the refrigerator for a few days because of the added lemon and lime juice.
If you find your dip too thick, add a little more water to thin it out when you’re blending it.
Are you on an oil-free diet? No problem! Try the dip without oil, the avocado itself contains a nice amount of good-for-you fats. Just replace the oil called for in the recipe with a little more water.
*Two small ones or one large one should suffice.
**Reserve onion greens to decorate dip. Chop then sprinkle over top of the serving bowl.
***Start with 1/4 teaspoon and taste after you blend. Add more if needed, up to 1/2 teaspoon total.
