Notes

Tips for Making the spread:
  • I get my avo oil at Trader Joe's but if you can't find avocado oil, you can substitute extra virgin olive oil for it.
  • I always strip the parsley leaves off the stems because the stems add a strong flavor that I believe isn't appropriate for this spread.
  • Use Greek yogurt (plain) as it gives the spread more substance than thinner, traditional yogurt.
How to wash Parsley:
  • Fill a big bowl halfway with cold water.
  • Take the bunch of parsley by the stems and dunk them in the water.
  • Swish and swirl the parsley and if there is any sand/dirt, it will fall to the bottom of the bowl. Repeat a couple of times with fresh water.
  • Lay the parsley on a paper towel and pat the plant with another paper towel to dry off the leaves.
