avocado + yogurt herb dip

This dip is super zesty and flavorful and can have many uses. I made it the other night as an accompaniment to white bean fritters and could definitely see it topping off some crispy crab cakes. My 3 year old friend Violet was using it as a dip for her rice cakes and as a spread on her sandwiches. It’s also a great dip for carrots. The recipe makes about two cups so you can use it in its many forms for a few days. My favorite? I watered it down and used it as a salad dressing. Reminiscent of a Green Goddess dressing (minus the buttermilk and anchovies), it has just the right balance of creaminess and acidity. And of course, I got to use my handy immersion blender.
