Its been quite a hectic week full of family functions one after the other. No doubt great catching up with the immediate and long lost relatives. Yet I've concluded that no matter what, some people never change. They have to brag about themselves and directly or indirectly show off their car(s) and must let you know how big the house is. Well, you can't change people neither can you avoid your relatives. Best thing to do is to greet, to smile and don't stand any close to them. Or else you have to knock your head on the wall or your ears will drop off.
Despite such relatives, there were great ones too. Those as crazy and open-minded like me. Of course my other half included too. We had fun, we laughed our hearts out and saying goodbye was sort of sentimental. Food at functions means eating mutton, chicken, nasi briyani and lots of other rich dishes. Logically instead of feeling guilty, its good to turn back the health. I couldn't think of any other except this avocado dip teamed with fresh salad. The fried chicken bacon is optional but I had to use up before expiring. The dip didn't turn out as green as those showcased by others. Maybe because I used mayonnaise.
For the dip
1 medium size avocado - remove skin and seed and diced.
1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 handful mint leaves
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper for taste
For the salad
Red capsicum - remove seeds and sliced thinly
Cucumber - sliced into long thin stripes
Tomato - sliced thinly
2-3 pieces chicken bacon - fried till crispy and cut into small piecesMethod
Add all the ingredients for the dip into the processor/blend.
Pulse till smooth and creamy.
Scoop into a serving bowl.
Gently mix up the ingredients for the salad with a pinch of salt.
Serve with the dip and some crackers.
