Appetizers/ Kid-Friendly Recipes

Easy Avocado Dip

Happy New Year!  Another year goes by so quickly and every new year its always the same resolution. Can you guess what I am thinking? Of course!

Shedding some pounds, what else! You know the same pounds we tend to put on during the holidays every year. 

Anyway, I thought I should post an easy avocado dip that is super easy to prepare and kid-friendly.  An avocado dip that is light and delicious with a tangy punch from the lemon, onion and cayenne pepper, served with some fresh cut vegetables (instead of chips) to make it more healthy!

This easy avocado dip is a great appetizer to whip up and serve just before dinner, or its perfect as an after school snack.  I guess you could call it guacamole, but I prefer not to since it’s missing the tomatoes, cilantro and black olives.  Anyway, I would love to hear your thoughts on new years resolutions too!
