Guacamole meets pesto in this dip. If you like either guacamole or pesto you will love this dip. If you don’t like guacamole or pesto, hopefully you will still love this dip.
The creaminess of the avocados, with the roasted taste of the pine nuts, and freshness of the parsley come together nicely and are given a helping hand from a little lemon, garlic and olive oil.
Great to snack on while while barbecuing on a summer’s day.
