A Guacamole Dip is a Mexican avocado salad recipe, and comes in many versions.
For the true Mexican version you need to use avocado, fresh cilantro, lime and chilies. But why not vary the same old' with a fresh Mediterranean spin?
Even though cilantro grows extremely well where I live I can rarely buy fresh cilantro here in Greece.
So, in this recipe I use flat leaf parsley for a fresh take of the traditional cilantro- but I also add ground coriander seed- the seed of cilantro- in the mix, for an interesting "earthy" flavor.
Instead of lime I use a fragrant and flavorful Greek lemon, both the juice and a sprinkle of the grated zest- too good not to use!
So, here is a Mediterranean version of this super-delicious and healthy vegan dip!
Serve the Mediterranean Guacamole with tortilla chips, or baked pita crisps for example, for a quick vegan appetizer.
In a bowl mix together:
You could prepare the dip until here in advance, to save time. The mix keeps for a couple of days in the fridge. The avocados should be added no more than an hour before serving.
Add to the spice/vegetable mixture and stir together. You can serve the guacamole immediately, but it's better to let is chill for up to an hour to let the flavors blend and develop.
