2 Dill-Avocado Dip with Fresh Tarragon & Chives

Pin It

I made this very versatile dip earlier tonight to serve with crudités. It's SO quick and easy to make! This recipe is great for when you need to whip up some last minute snacks for guests or impromptu get-togethers. It's very zesty and flavorful, and would also taste great with baked chips, etc. It'd also make a tasty and out-of-the-ordinary sandwich spread. Or use it to spackle a green-colored wall. Lol. OK, only kidding about that last suggestion; just wanted to see if you were paying attention. :) And just in case you were wondering, no, I've never actually tested out that last idea. :-D

Dill-Avocado Dip with Fresh Tarragon & Chives

3/4 c. ripe Haas avocado, diced (about 1 medium-sized Haas avocado)
1 c. nonfat plain Greek yoghurt
2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
1 Tbsp. garlic, peeled and finely minced (about 2 large cloves)
1/4 c. scallions, white and green parts, sliced crosswise into 1/4"-thick rounds (about 4 large scallions)
1/4 c. fresh chives, chopped and densely packed
1/3 c. fresh dill (or to taste), roughly chopped and densely packed
2 Tbsp. fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped and densely packed
1 Tbsp. fresh tarragon, roughly chopped and densely packed
3/8 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

Directions: Place 2 Tbsp. of the chives in a small custard dish to reserve for later use (i.e., to be mixed before serving). Set aside. Then place all the rest of the ingredients into a food processor. Process until mixture is smooth and ingredients have been evenly distributed throughout, about 2-3 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer mixture to a container with a tight-fitting, sealable lid, cover, and chill for at least a half hour before serving. Just before serving, remove from refrigerator and mix one more time. Can be made up to a day in advance. Serve & enjoy!

Yield: About 2 c.

I've been ignoring the Avocados at the store, but no more! This looks fantastic. I think the husband will love it, too.
