Avocado Herb Dip


Recipe Information

Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 3 (3/4 cup)

This super-simple dip is a good one to throw together for hungry kids after school, or for unexpected guests. It's healthy and sustaining enough to take to work for lunch, too.


  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, fat free or low fat
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Baguette slices, pita wedges, carrot sticks or sliced veggies for dipping


  1. In a food processor, mince the garlic and tarragon by pulsing and scraping the mixture down until the garlic is finely chopped. Add the avocado, yogurt and salt and process until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a medium bowl and serve with dippers. Any leftover dip can be covered with plastic wrap pressed onto the surface of the dip to prevent air contact (which causes discoloration), for a couple of days.

Serving Suggestions

This dip makes a great after school snack for kids or as an appetizer. It's easy enough to whip up to feed a crowd of any size.
