This avocado spread it easy to make and very delicious! It’s perfect on your salad, on veggies or spread on bread for your sandwiches!
I look at this lovely simple avocado spread and think ‘green yummy goodness’. It is so versatile. You can use it to spread on your crackers or on bread for a sandwich, to dress your salad, as a dip for your veggies or you can eat it out of the jar by the spoonful. Do I eat it like that? Me?! Oh, never!!
Okay, okay! I do, I do! Actually more than I like to admit.
And it is super easy and it only has 6 ingredients if you count the salt!
This avocado parsley spread takes all of five minutes to make and tastes so good that you think you spent more time making it.
This is going to be a short simple post because it’s a short (time) simple recipe. 🙂
On to the Avocado Spread recipe
It’s time to gather the parsley, measure out the yogurt and olive oil.
Then I cut the avocado in half, take out the pit and scoop the flesh out of the skin. I proceed to cut the avocado in slices and chunks. Next, I half the lemon, juice it with my lemon/lime hand juicer and measure out 2 tablespoons worth, which usually translates to half a lemon.
I pull out my trusty food processor and put the parsley, olive oil, yogurt and salt in it. At this point, I feel like resting my forehead on the white knob below, as I’m overcome by the beauty of the ingredients in the processor. It’s either that or I forgot to breath while taking the photo. 🙂
Process into Avocado Spread
I process the ingredients on the highest setting.
I open the shute and put in a tablespoon of lemon. Then I stop the processor to taste the mixture. I find that I’d prefer the flavor of the full 2 tablespoons, so in goes the lemon juice and I continue blending until it is nice and creamy!
Once it’s done, I taste it again just for fun, nod my head and beam a smile in Christopher’s direction. Who cares if he is a different room? I know he can feel me smiling!
Another delish spread by Lainey! But not just any spread, AVOCADO spread.
I even let him taste it before I jar it up. Aren’t I nice and giving? I think so. 🙂
If you don’t want the avocado spread to be so thick and more like a pourable dressing, then what I would do is use 1/2 cup of yogurt instead of the cup. Or you can make it as is and just add a little oil before you put it on your salad. I use it as is. It coats the lettuce leaves so nicely.
I hope you enjoy this avocado spread recipe.
