Avocado Pesto Dip

Avocado Pesto Dip

Avocado Pesto Dip . . . another reason to have a good pesto recipe in your wheelhouse (and I’m biased because I think you should use my Pistachio Pine Nut Pesto recipe that I posted yesterday).  The awesome thing about this dip is how easy it is to make.  Pesto + avocado + a bit of lemon juice.  Put everything in the food processor, pulse, and voila!  Thick, creamy dip full of that delicious pesto flavor and healthy fats from the avocado.

Avocado Pesto Dip

Makes approximately 1 1/2 cups dip

Ingredients:
1 batch Pistachio Pine Nut Pesto (about 1 cup)
1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

Directions:
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth and creamy. Serve with fresh cut veggies. Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days (the lemon juice will prevent the dip from turning brown).
