Avocado Vegetable Dip

By | 2017-10-29T15:42:00+00:00 August 6th, 2011|Appetizers, Gluten Free, Recipes|

What I like about this raw avocado vegetable dip is that it is full of vegetables; adding the celery makes it crunchy and not so rich as well as healthier.
There are so many dips available to buy at the grocery store but this is one is healthier with it’s low sodium content,  monounsaturated fat and a good source of lutein, an antioxidant that may protect vision. Best of all it is fresh and tasty. Also, I enjoy this mixture is on mixed green salads.

Ingredients:

1 ripe avocado, peeled & pitted
1 tsp. onion, finely minced
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1 – 2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tomato, chopped
Nori & Dulse seaweed flakes to taste

Directions:

1. Mash avocado.
2. Add onion, celery and lemon juice and mix in well.
3. Gently mix in chopped tomato.
4 Place in serving bowl on a plate surround with cucumber rounds, slices of radishes and corn chips.
