This is my little slice of heaven! Call it a spread, dip, dressing! Call it whatever floats your boat – I just call it Yummy! I can’t ever get enough!
I literally make this spread ( dip, dressing, again call it whatever makes you happy) once a week, or more! It is chock full of some of my favorite things and it is so delicious and low-fat. I use it on sandwiches and veggie wraps! I use this as a dip for whole wheat tortilla chips, veggies and pretzels as a mid-day snack. Mix it with tuna and have on a lettuce or collard green wrap! It can be used as a dressing for salads – I just add a little more balsamic vinegar and lemon juice!
I am feeling a bit like Forrest Gump and his shrimp right about now! This is a mouth-watering blend of avocado, lemon, green onion, white balsamic vinegar, garlic and herbs! Even the herbs can be changed up to what you have on hand! If you want it as a dressing, add a little more balsamic and lemon. The greatest part of this recipe is that you really can adjust all the components! I think I am going to finish this post up and make a batch of this sumptuous spread and have some carrots and this Avocado Lemon Herb Spread!!
I hope you make this recipe and share with me the ways you have decided to use it on some of your creative dishes at home!
