avocadodipWhen you think avocado, you probably think first of guacamole but avocado also works wonderfully as a topping for hamburgers, grilled chicken, or even cold meat sandwiches! Of course, you can also modify it to use as a dip for vegetables or chips!


  • 1 seeded and peeled avocado
  • 1 to 2 t. finely chopped chives
  • 1 T. pear juice
  • 1 T. finely chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper as tolerated to taste

Mash avocado with a fork. Gently combine other ingredients. Spread on bread and add your choice of cooked meat (leftover chicken, turkey, and pork work well).

To Use as a Dip for Vegetables, Crackers, or Chips: Increase pear juice to 3 T. and use 2 T. finely chopped cilantro in place of dill (if tolerated).
