An easy avocado dip is a great addition to your party menu. Make it for game day or add to a buffet table.
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 avocado dip recipe I quickly thought to serve this with cold shrimp appetizers for holiday gatherings. However, you can add fresh cut vegetables to make this a delicious vegetarian option. This is an easy recipe to add to your menu.
Making an avocado dip can be served in any season. Everyone will enjoy it on game day with chips. It’s great to add to a party buffet table. Slice fresh carrots, peppers, cucumbers in match sticks. Add a few gluten free crackers and this dip will please just about everyone.
With our hectic schedules, especially when entertaining, this avocado dip fits right in. Prepare the vegetables a day or two in advance. Having them cleaned, cut and ready for serving is a huge time saver.
I would not prepare the avocado a day in advance. This recipe is so easy, it takes about 10 minutes or less. That allows you plenty of time to make it a few hours before you are ready to serve.Print
