Easy Avocado Spread

(2 Votes)

This easy spread made from luscious avocados, which naturally contain MUFAs (Monounsaturated Fatty Acids), is a perfect snack or appetizer choice as part of a heart-healthy diet.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 ripened avocados, rinsed and dried
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
What To Do:
  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the avocados in half, working around the pit. Twist avocados to separate the halves. Spoon out the pit and scoop out the avocado flesh into a resealable plastic storage bag. Add lemon juice and salt, seal bag, and mash the avocado with your hands until mixture is combined and spreadable.
     
  2. Cut the tip off one corner of plastic bag and pipe mixture onto French bread slices, crackers, or slices of fresh vegetables. Top with a dab of your favorite condiment, such as salsa, sun-dried tomatoes, or chopped olives.
     

Makes about 3/4 cup.

Avocado is easily my favorite topping. Lemon juice is a great idea because it fights browning, but if you want to amp up the taste I recommend adding Sriracha or another mild-medium hot sauce. It adds a little spice, but the creaminess of the avocado balances it out so you aren't running for milk or water after one bite. Better even, mix it with egg yolks and spoon it into a boiled egg for a different take on deviled eggs! That's where the plastic bag will come in especially handy no messy spoons! Just pipe it right in.

Kitchen Sink Pie

Our Kitchen Sink Pie was inspired by the famous "Kitchen Sink" ice cream dessert from Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor in Florida. Like the original, it's got everything but the kitchen sink, including an ice cream cone crust, piles of ice cream, and all sorts of sundae toppings!
