Pondering perfect pairings is fun. When two things go together…
I love a good dip, don’t you?
However, I’ve found that enjoying dips while AIP-ing can be rather difficult since many recipes are mayo-based. Eggs are a staple ingredient in making mayonnaise, but eggs are, of course, not part of the AIP elimination phase. An alternative to mayonnaise is coconut milk or cream, which would be AIP-friendly, but many peeps just can’t tolerate coconut.
No eggs? No coconut? No problem whatsoever because this egg-free, coconut-free Avo-Lemon-Dill Dip is delicious and velvety and oh-so perfect for dipping and dunking. Who needs icky processed ranch dip for veggies when you can have this tangy, creamy dip instead.
Dip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Dip-A-Dee-Ay. My, oh my, what a wonderful day when you can nom on the deliciousness of this Avo-Lemon-Dill Dip!
PS: Stay tuned because I have a lovely recipe coming up later this week for something that pairs splendidly with this dip.
