Heart Healthy Recipe Feature: Avocado Dip

Avocado Dip

Dietitian’s tip:

Avocado, also known as the alligator pear, is high in monounsaturated fat and a good source of lutein, an antioxidant that may protect vision. This mixture is a great dressing for mixed green salads and is a good topping for fish or chicken.

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  2. 2 teaspoons chopped onion
  3. 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
  4. 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed

Directions

In a small bowl, combine sour cream, onion, hot sauce and avocado. Mix to blend the ingredients evenly. Serve with baked tortilla chips or sliced vegetables.
