Some of you guys have sent me messages asking why I haven’t posted a recipe in a while–I am going to be totally honest, this passed month has been THE craziest month EVER…and I do mean ever. My mother and mother-in-law came to visit and I traveled to Nepal for a week (that is a whole different post), so in all honesty, I haven’t had a moment to even think straight. Sorry?
Anyhoo, I know guacamole may be a very basic recipe whether you use it as a dip with tortilla chips or tacos, or as a creamy dressing for any green salad–but I can promise you my easy version of the Mexican classic will knock your guests’ socks off!
For this recipe you will need:
- A ripe avocado
- Green spring onions
- The juice of a lemon
- A diced tomato
- Chopped coriander leaves
- ¼ cup of fresh yogurt
- Olive oil
- Salt & pepper
I know it seems like a few more ingredients than your average guac, but I promise those extra ingredients will make ALL the difference! I like to add yogurt to give the dip more body; yogurt makes the dip creamier and almost the texture of an avocado mousse if that makes any sense? While adding the drizzle of olive oil gives a silky and glossy finish. What’s not to love, right?
First, dice the avocado inside the skin and scoop out with a spoon into a bowl. Using the back of a fork, squish and smash the avocado flesh until creamy.
Last, add the rest of the ingredients and drizzle a small amount of olive oil and salt & pepper to taste. Voila! You’ve got yourself a kick-ass dip that’ll have everyone coming back for seconds…guaranteed!
Go straight-up bananas and try out the recipe. Let me know how it goes!
