  • 1 bunch dill
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 seedless cucumber
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice

How it’s Done

Gather ingredients
Cut the cucumber into large chunks.
In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients.
Puree until smooth. Taste to adjust seasoning.
Serve with Baked Curry Samosa Cakes or Curry Roasted Yukons and Cauliflower. Also a great dressing for salads.

Chef KatieTip: Trying to find ripe avocados at the market?  Ask the people who work there — often they have some ripe ones in the back which they use to make guacamole.

Chef Katie’s Tips: 

Herb Variations:  Want to try out some other flavors?  Swap out the dill for other fresh herbs.  This is great dip for exploring the fresh flavors of basil, mint, chives, garlic scapes, and fresh parsley.  Use up those fresh herbs from your garden – don’t be afraid to mix and match.  Mint-basil is one of my favorites!
