Do you need another dip for your mezzeh spread? Well, here you go. This dip goes VERY well with grilled meats and fish.
We had this with our BBQ’ed chicken over Easter break, and it is a twist on muthawama (garlic potato dip). This is an avocado version which is slightly mellower, yet still has lots of garlic flavor.
Avocado Garlic Dip
3 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1.5 ripe avocados
3-4 tablespoons mayonnaise
juice of 1/4 lemon
salt and pepper, to taste
In a blender bowl, place garlic and olive oil. Start the blender. Add the next 5 ingredients, and blend until completely smooth.
Note – if you need to prepare this ahead of time, make sure to press some plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the dip, so that it doesn’t turn brown.
