Meld the creamy richness of avocado with the sweetness of pear into a dip that your crudités will beg for. Highly nutritious avocados are packed with potassium and contain more beta-carotene than many other fruits


  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and mashed into small pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 1 ripe pear, diced fine (about 1 ½ cup)
  • 2 green onions, white and green parts chopped fine
  • 1 serrano or jalapeno chili pepper, minced (remove veins and seeds for less heat)
  • Juice of a lemon (2 to 3 tablespoons)
  • Pinch or two of salt


  1. Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and mash together with a fork, or place in a food processor and blend.
  2. This dip is delicious chunky or blended until smooth.
  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  4. Avocado tends to brown when exposed to air.
  5. The lemon juice will help keep the fruit green but keep the bowl covered until ready to serve.
  6. Serve dip with crudités (raw vegetables), baked crackers or toasted pita bread wedges.
