Greek Yogurt Avocado Dip
Dips are always fun to make, especially if you have a food processor and can whip them up in seconds! Although sometimes a hot dip is good, such as this hot and creamy crab dip or even our tasty artichoke dip, cool and creamy dips are also good. Try our Greek yogurt avocado dip if you like cool, creamy dips for your chips or crudites.
When I made this particular recipe I enjoyed it with Doritos, but you could serve this with crackers, vegetable crudites, melba toast, baguette bread slices, corn chips, potato chips, or anything else you want to dip in there. I made this in literally 3 minutes and the flavor was amazing. I wasn’t planning to eat all of this Greek yogurt avocado dip but, uh, well you know how it is!
What You Need to Make Greek YogurtAavocado Dip
You will need some Greek yogurt, an avocado, some lime juice, and salt and black pepper to taste. If you want, you can swap the Greek yogurt for sour cream or use half and half. I’ve made it both ways, and both are good. Serve this as a Greek yogurt avocado dressing over salad if you want. If you prefer a thinner consistency, add a splash of milk (only a little bit because you don’t want it too thin). Some cilantro in the Greek yogurt avocado dip is also nice, or you could put a small pinch of garlic powder in there. Even some hot sauce for a special zing!
If you enjoy this Greek yogurt avocado dip, you can tweak it the next time you make it, perhaps adding some grated cheddar cheese in there or switching the cilantro for parsley. There are all kinds of variations but the Greek yogurt and avocado will be your base ingredients.
This Greek yogurt avocado dip recipe is a nice way of using up an avocado slightly beyond its prime, so if you have one that is turning brown and not really appetizing to serve as a garnish, consider making this tasty Greek yogurt avocado dip with it instead.
