Green Goddess dip is creamy, light and absolutely addictive. Serve with chopped veggies for a healthy and delicious appetizer or a quick snack.
We are starting a brand new week of Blogging Marathon today and my theme for this week is 'Dips for Snack'. I think having a few dip recipes in the repertoire helps out with impromptu guests and with hungry afternoons. So first up is a creamy and delicious Green Goddess dip made with avocado.I rarely make dips at home, but I always wish I had a few recipes in my back pocket to make for parties and pot lucks. When Valli had this theme, I knew this will give me a chance to try some delicious dip recipes. So for the next 3 days, I have some easy to make dip recipes that are sure to be a hit at your next party.Today's Green goddess dip is very very easy to make. Takes about 5 minutes to put together, but tastes absolutely delicious. Adding avocado gives it a beautiful green color and makes the dip airy, creamy and yummyy. I added cilantro and mint to the dip, but feel free to use your favorite herbs - parsley, basil, tarragon etc are perfect in this recipe.This green goddess dip is great to serve with veggies, chips. But the recipe is quite versatile - thin it out and use it as a salad dressing. I even ate it as a chutney with rice. In fact I could not stop myself from licking the spoon - it's that addictive.Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 94.
