Avocado Dip


I ran across this cool dip over at The Jey of Cooking.  Nice and healthy with a great mix of flavors.  The only thing missing was some jalapeno peppers for a little heat chaser....I'll add them in next time.  I swapped out kiwi for the mango in the original recipe...I already had mango in another dip for the same gathering.


Avocado Dip

2 avocados
1 apple, diced (Pink Lady)
2 kiwi, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1 tbls diced garlic
2 tbls lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
salt, to taste

Mash avocados with a fork before transferring to a bowl.  Mix in remaining ingredients, combining well.  Serve with chips.
