Minted pea, lemon and avocado dip

pea and mint dip

These six basic fridge and pantry staples come together so beautifully to make an incredibly delicious dip, pasta sauce, salad dressing, sandwich spread, bruscetta topping……You would be surprised at how delicious it is: sweet, salty, creamy, zesty – fabulous.  You will just have to try it to see what I mean.  I’m happy to eat it by the spoonful!!.  The recipe originally called for broad beans instead of peas and ricotta instead of cream cheese.  I didn’t fancy peeling broad beans so used peas instead which provides that perfect sweet balance.
