Avocado and Tomato Dip

I have been on an avocado kick the last few weeks. It all started when I was walking through the produce section and put two avocados in the cart — with no clue what to do with them. When I got home I put them on the counter. When Jeff came home he looked at them, looked at me, made a face and said there was no way he was eating them. Since then I have used those up and bought three more and they are all gone.

The first time I used an avocado I just spread a quarter of a section on a slice of bread for a turkey sandwich. Jeff did not even notice it was there and I certainly was not divulging.

The second time I went to my twitter friends for suggestions. One woman came back with the idea for a dip. Just grind it up with a tomato and garlic she said. That seemed too easy but I tried it anyway except I did not stop with the three ingredients. What follows is my avocado dip. I have tried it twice and liked it both times.

Avocado and Tomato Dip Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 of avocado
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 small tomato
  • 1/2 jalapeno (seeds removed)
  • couple tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • couple pinches of dry parsley

Directions:

I use a Bullet blender. I put all the ingredients into the small container (which also has a handy storage lid) and blended it. I refrigerated it for a few hours before trying – delicious and guilt free.

The first time (with Tostitos) I made this it was a little thinner than the second because the tomato may have been a bit bigger. But it was tasty both times.

This avocado dip has a bit of bite but I would consider it mild. I have tried it with crackers and Tostitos scoops — I prefer it with the saltiness of the scoops.

  1. Everything sounds good but the yogurt part. For some reason, yogurt just tastes awful to me. And Greek Yogurt…not my favorite.

    I wonder what I could use instead of the yogurt? I know…no sour cream.lol

  2. I a huge fan of green yogurt right now, especially Oikos blueberry. I am sure sour cream would work like a charm. ;)
