Avocado dip

It's just so simple, so yummy, and always a crowd pleaser. Avocados seem to be in plentiful supply at the moment so grab a few and start mashing. Here's a tip - if you want to make your avos ripen more quickly, store them next to a banana.

Serve with toasted pita bread chips or corn chips. And some cold white wine. It may be a pre-dinner snack but could end up being your dinner! If you're anything like me, you'll also put a dollop of sour cream on top. And why not! 


3 medium avocados, chopped
½ small red onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon Tabasco sauce
Chopped fresh coriander leaves, to serve


Place avocado in a bowl. Mash with a fork until almost smooth. Add onion, lemon juice and Tabasco. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Top with coriander. Serve immediately.
