Filled with lots of fresh cilantro and parsley, lemon and jalapeño, this avocado-herb dip is so flavorful with only a few basic ingredients.



1 avocado, roughly chopped
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 jalapeño, seeds and membrane left intact, roughly chopped
1 cup fresh parsley leaves
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 lemon, juiced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup olive oil


  1. In a food processor, add avocado, garlic cloves, jalapeño, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Blend until well chopped and combined.
  2. With the food processor running, pour in the oil olive through the spout. Start with a 1/4 cup of olive oil. If it's a little too thick, add the remaining 1/4 cup. Refrigerate for a few hours to chill and allow the flavors to meld. Enjoy!
