This avocado dip can be used in all sorts of ways from a dip for crudities and crisps to a sandwich filler with chicken, prawns or salmon to a side sauce for seared salmon as I’ve used it here. Super easy to make with few ingredients it’s the perfect spring addition to your recipe collection.
With merely four ingredients and no real effort involved there really is no excuse for not making this avocado dip and I just know that once you’ve tried it once you’ll be whipping it up all the time.
With almonds, avocado, lime juice and salt and pepper you can remember the ingredients without even looking them up and it is such a good way to use up that avocado that always seems to be lurking in the salad drawer. Not only is it easy to make and remember but it’s healthy too so you really can’t go wrong with this one.
You can always add other flavourings to it as well to jazz things up a bit. Fresh chilli finely chopped would give it a nice kick or you could even add some curry spices for a totally different taste sensation. Here’s where you can find out how I make my own curry spice mix.
Sometimes the simplest things are the best and this avocado dip certainly proves that.
