Avocado Tzatziki

Tzatziki, the classic Greek yogurt-cucumber dip, has grown in stature in recent years, as chefs experiment with mixing more than just cukes into a thick bowl of Greek yogurt. Indeed, avocado and yogurt make a perfect Mediterranean diet ingredients pairing! You can play around with the herbs. Cilantro, mint, parsley, dill and basil all work equally well.



  1. Halve the avocado lengthwise. Remove the pit. Scoop out the pulp and place it in a mixing bowl. Mash it with a fork. Add the Greek yogurt, garlic, a few tablespoons of olive oil, the lime juice, mint or cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste. Whisk or mix vigorously with a fork until smooth.
