avocado-cumin yogurt dip

An odd conodrum for January: an avocado nearing its demise and leftover cilantro from dal with curried tarka.  First thoughts were a salad but after spotting some greek yogurt in the fridge I was reminded of a dip my friend Mary Beth made years ago. So a dip was made, no food was wasted and I had a taste of warm weather in the middle of winter. Life is good.
Avocado-Cumin Yogurt Dip
  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • dash of hot sauce

Combine all ingredients. Let sit for at least 30 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips. (Does not keep very well so eat up!)
