Summer Vegetable Dip

My sister(I-L) Amy inspired me to eat more avocados after making this delicious meal for our family.

Since then this dip / dressing has been on basically everything.

It goes beautifully on a green salad with strawberries and chickpeas but my favourite way to eat it is on raw vegetables.

The avocados give the dip such a perfect thick consistency.

Tangy Avocado Dressing (or Dip)
(found over at apartment therapy's The Kitchn)

1 perfectly ripe Avocado
1 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion (I left this out)
2-3 Tbsp lemon or lime juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 small garlic clove chopped
1 Tbsp fresh dill
1/2 tsp salt
dash of cayenne pepper

Place everything in a blender or food processor bowl and blend until smooth.  (or use an immersion blender)
Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more lemon if necessary to get it to the right consistency.
