In the spirit of the Super Bowl, I’m posting this great dip that we are going to enjoy tonight for the festivities. I don’t follow football. We aren’t having a big Super Bowl party tonight. But I love any opportunity to have fun and make fun food! 🙂
Here’s my fabulous, easy and healthy dip recipe!
ZESTY AVOCADO DIP
2 ripe avocados
1 bell pepper (any colour), chopped
1/2 yellow or red onion
1-2 cloves of garlic (…Depending on your want of garlic-iness… for those who want the least amount of garlic flavour, use 1 clove but boil it in water for a few minutes before adding it)
1/2 bunch fresh parsley
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro (I omitted this from my recipe because I can’t stand cilantro! LOL! But I know this herb typically works really well with avocado and this kind of dip, so I included it for all you cilantro lovers out there. As an alternative, once I tasted my dip, I thought dill would work really well here.)
1/3 cup red wine vinegar or raw unpasturized apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
I threw it all in my food processor and zapped it into a semi-smooth dip. Straight up, this can be served with corn chips. It’s so versatile, since it can also be as a sauce for fajitas, chicken, veggies or grains, or used as a dip for quesadillas, raw veggies or crackers. To make it into a sauce, just increase the amount of olive oil to thin out the consistency if needed. When a little more olive oil is added, it also makes an AWESOME creamy salad dressing.
Yum! I love a zesty dip like this! Game on!
