Avocado Veggie Dip


I use to make a mean vegetable dip. Everyone loved it, but it's base was in mayonnaise and sour cream. Since I no longer consume either one I've been dreaming about a veggie dip that will get the same response from family and friends. I'm not sure this is it, but the dip and vegetables disappeared quickly!!


Avocado Veggie Dip

1 large avocado, peeled and mashed
2 T fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, finely minced
3 T red onion, finely chopped
1/2 C Vegenaise
10 dashes of Tabasco Sauce - or to taste
1/4 t. kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Add the lemon juice, garlic clove, red onion and Vegenaise. Mix to combine. Add the Tabasco, salt and pepper. Serve with cut vegetables.

Note: Once again, the photo isn't mine. My camera just couldn't get a good pic.
