Avocado Dip

holiday appetizer dip

Avocados are one of my favorite foods and they are one of the foods that have the ‘good’ fat which we all should add to our diets.

I always have avocados handy and add them to my salads, and sometimes I make a guacamole for lunch and instead of chips I use whole grain crispy crackers.

When I saw this dip recipe I quickly thought to serve this with cold shrimp appetizers for holiday gatherings this season.

It’s so easy to make and is perfect with cold shrimp appetizers for your holiday gatherings.

With our hectic schedules especially when entertaining this recipe fits right in.   I wouldn’t make this a day in advance, but this is so fast and easy you can make it a few hours before you are ready to serve.
