You know that feeling when you cut into an avocado only to find it is bruised and has a few brown spots? I actually get excited because I know it means I am going to make this dip! With avocados, tons of herbs, garlic and citrus - this dip feels like a treat every time I make it. But, do you want to know the secret ingredient?
My homemade everything bagel seasoning with Morton® Coarse Kosher Salt! The Kosher salt won’t dissolve quickly in the dip, leaving every bite to be the perfect combination of savory, creamy and salty dip-liciousness!
Food Waste Tip:
Have some bruising on your avocados? No need to get rid of them. Puree them into a dip where no one will ever be able to tell they had few brown spots and you still get a ton of great flavor.
2 ripe (or slightly overripe) avocados, peeled and pitted
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
1 clove garlic, chopped
½ bunch parsley, roughly 1 cup
3 sprigs dill, leaves and stems
1 sprig tarragon, leaves and stems
½ lemon, zest and juice
3 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning, plus more for garnish
To the base of a food processor, add the avocados, mayonnaise, and sour cream. Blend on high for 10-15 seconds, until fully combined.
Add in the herbs, garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice. Run the food processor on high for 25-30 seconds until the herbs have been chopped and the dip turns green in color.
Remove to a bowl and stir in 3 tablespoons of everything bagel seasoning.
Serve topped with more everything bagel seasoning and cracker and/or fresh cut crudité. Or, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
