It’s National Avocado Day and we are ready to celebrate! Creamy Avocado Dip is a simple to make healthy dip. It is made with 5 ingredients plus salt and pepper and is delicious. Green onion and cilantro really boost the flavor and Greek yogurt makes it creamy and adds some probiotics. A touch of lime juice adds a nice brightness and keeps the color green.
Avocados have an enzyme that reacts with oxygen and turns it to a dull brown when it is removed from its shell. Limes are very acidic and combat the enzyme from doing that. The lime is the key ingredient for the appearance of this dip.
This dip would be great with chips or fresh vegetables.
