An odd conodrum for January: an avocado nearing its demise and leftover cilantro from dal with curried tarka.  First thoughts were a salad but after spotting some greek yogurt in the fridge I was reminded of a dip my friend Mary Beth made years ago. So a dip was made, no food was wasted and I had a taste of warm weather in the middle of winter. Life is good.
Avocado-Cumin Yogurt Dip
  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • dash of hot sauce

Combine all ingredients. Let sit for at least 30 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips. (Does not keep very well so eat up!)

    This dip looks delicious! I’m always on the look out for new dips to try as they pair so nicely with chopped veggies.

    Love the dish too!!

    Yum! This looks wonderful. I bet it would also be good on top of the leftover wheatberry salad in my fridge. All I need to do is get an avocado!

    Wow, what a simple dip, but lovely flavor combinations. It could even be a spread for sandwiches!

    That dip looks so rich and delicious. I bet it would be pretty tasty with Pita Chips, too. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
