Recipe: Avocado dip

Recipe: Avocado dip

Avocado dip — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

Avocado, also known as the alligator pear, is high in monounsaturated fat and a good source of lutein, an antioxidant that may protect vision. This mixture is a great dressing for mixed green salads and is a good topping for fish or chicken.


Directions

In a small bowl, combine sour cream, onion, hot sauce and avocado. Mix to blend the ingredients evenly. Serve with baked tortilla chips or sliced vegetables.


Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons chopped onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed
