Avocado Cucumber Almond Dip

Avocados are a rarity in this house. Not because we don’t like them, but because, I can never seem to get a good one! Its almost always either overripe or under done. This is when I follow all instructions to the T, check on them every day, thrice a day, whatever google tells me to do and yet, most often their fate is in the bin! But the day a good one comes, its a fiesta! And this time we celebrated with this velvety dreamy Avocado Cucumber Almond Dip!

Avocado Cucumber Almond Dip

This is so great for entertaining and for everyday use.  The ingredients are simple and few and your blender does all the work. Store it in an airtight jar for 4-5 days and its still as good as new.  We love it with crackers, vegetable sticks, on our toasts, in our sandwiches and its a wonderful salad dressing!

This is one healthy condiment you can eat as much as you want.  Avocado, almonds and greek yogurt together provide so much creaminess here, that I promise you don’t miss the mayonnaise or cream cheese.  All the herbs pump it up with fresh, bright flavours. This is full of  good fats, proteins, vitamins, fiber, potassium, has anti inflammatory properties….not really what anyone associates with a dip, right? 🙂

NOTES:

  • If you don’t have avocado, you can increase the quantity of blanched almonds to 1/3 cup.
  • You can use all cilantro or some basil too if parsley is not available.
  • The dip may seem a little runny, but it does thicken as it sits in the refreigerator.

Eating healthy and well does not have to be boring and dull. Try this glorious dip  and do let me know how these turned out for you in a comment below. You can also share a picture on INSTAGRAM using #tashasartisanfoods.
