 I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July celebrations! We’re still visiting family so we had lots of fun with cousins and of course there was plenty of food to be eaten!

One of the things I made was this Avocado Dip. It comes together in minutes so it’s perfect to make for a BBQ, picnic, or get together and it can be made ahead of time. Luckily, the canned salsa verde has lots of acidity from the lime and green tomatillos so it keeps the avocados from turning brown.

Serve up with some tortilla chips and watch it disappear. I couldn’t help but sneak several bites of this after I made it. It was so good. Plus, you have to taste test, right 🙂

NOTE:: I can either find canned salsa verde in a 24 oz jar or a small 7 oz can. The recipe calls for 1 cup (which is 8 oz) but I always just use the cheaper, 7 oz can and call it good. I’m a cheap-o with my grocery budget and don’t like spending the extra few dollars to get the remaining 1 oz. 

You can find the canned salsa verde by the salsas or by the Mexican/International food area. It’s pretty common so it should be really easy to find.

    I am not a fan of salsa verde, to put it nicely, any suggestions of what to use in lieu of it?? It looks AMAZING! ?

      Hi Jennine! It really is so good. You could try using a salsa you like in place of the salsa verde. Not sure how it would taste or turn out because I have only ever made it with the salsa verde. If it helps at all, the salsa verde is not spicy at all in this recipe. The creamy avocado balances it out really nicely. If it's spice you're worried about then you could always leave out the red onion. Hopefully that helps and let me know if you use another salsa! I'd love to know how it turns out.

    How about green onions? Has anyone experimented with this... I have green onions on hand but not red ones, was just wondering what the ratio would be or how many green onions to add. Thanks!!

      I think green onions would be a great substitution! I've never used the in this avocado dip but I see no reason why it wouldn't work. You would still get that onion flavor from them.

      Hi Jackie. I have only used the Herdez brand of salsa verde. It's the only one I can ever find at my grocery store. I hope that helps you and that you can find it at your store :)

      Hey! Thanks so much for stopping by. Yes adding jalapenos would be a great addition to this. It's by far my most requested and favorite dip ever. Enjoy!

      They actually don't! I was surprised when I first made it cause I thought for sure it would turn brown. If you left it in the fridge for days and days then yes eventually it would turn brown. The salsa verde has nice acidity to it which keeps the avocados green. If you're worried you could always add some fresh lime juice as that will also help hold the color of the avocados. I hope that helps :)

      Yes! That is exactly what I use. The jarred salsa verde. Mine actually comes in a small can but it's the same thing. I have also bought it in a jar (like a salsa jar) before. It just depends on what store I am shopping at. I hope you love this. Whenever I go to Sam's Club I buy the bulk bag of avocados just so I can make this dip :)

      I am not sure. I have only ever used Salsa Verde. I know it would work but just not sure how it would taste?? I have this game day dip recipe on the blog that uses Italian dressing. It's really good and also has avocado in it http://togetherasfamily.com/2017/01/game-day-dip/

    Yum! This looks amazing! I'm planning on making this dip for a work pot luck on Friday - I'm curious about how many people will this recipe serve? Trying to figure out if I need to double it (my office has about 10 people)
    • Together As Family says

      It is so good! This makes quite a bit of dip and I am sure it would be plenty for 10 people. I am assuming with it being a potluck that there will be other food, so this recipe will plenty for the 10 people. I hope you all love it and enjoy your potluck! I love potlucks :) I'll add that the most recent time I made this, I made it for my entire family (siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, parents, grandparents, etc.) and it was plenty for all of us. There were lots of people and it was a potluck situation as well.
