Do you find yourself cooking more while at home? Maybe playing with new recipes? This is the perfect dip to give a try! It’s quick and easy, just toss in the ingredients and blend. Lighter than traditional guacamole it’s loaded with protein and healthy fat for a satisfying snack. Serve with crudités or whole grain pita chips.
