An easy avocado dip with walnuts and pistachios.


 

If you love dips and spreads, today’s recipe is right up your alley! From hummus and baba ganoush to melitzanosalata and labneh, dips are always a great addition to a table! Today I’m going to show you how to make this delicious green dip made with avocados and nuts!

About this recipe

I like dips to be full of flavor and this avocado dip is no exception. If you love avocado, you’ve got to try my pomegranate guacamole, it’s so tasty!

This creamy green dip has a nice nutty flavor thanks to walnuts and pistachios that goes well with the creaminess of the avocados. This dip is best served fresh since avocados might turn brown after a while.

Ingredients

  • Avocados: Make sure your avocados are perfectly ripe. To see if the avocado is ripe, take off the brown cap on top, if it’s green under the cap, the avocado is ripe. If the cap doesn’t come off, it’s not ripe yet.
  • Pistachios and walnuts: It’s best to use raw pistachios and nuts for this recipe. Make sure they’re not flavored.
  • Yogurt: To make the dip even creamier, use plain yogurt. You can use Greek yogurt, regular yogurt, whole milk or non-fat yogurt.
Pistachio Walnut Avocado Dip is perfect for gatherings, or just as an afternoon snack. It's packed with nuts and nutrients. Amazingly delicious!

Instructions

  1. Cut the avocados in half and take the pits out. Peel the avocados and set the aside.
  2. Place the walnuts and pistachios in a food processor and blend until it turns into crumbles.
  3. Add in the avocadoes, yogurt, salt and lime juice. Blend until creamy and combined.
  4. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and top with parsley and pepper flakes. Serve with barbari, pita, pita chips, lavash or naan.

Variations

Here are a few variations of this easy avocado dip recipe:

  • Avocado dip without yogurt: If you’d like a dairy free option, you can use non-dairy yogurt such as cashew or almond milk yogurt.
  • Spicy: Add 1/2 jalapeno pepper to the dip.
  • Herbs: Add 1/2 cup chopped cilantro to the avocados and blend.
  • Garlic: For garlic avocado dip, add 2 cloves of garlic to the pistachios and walnuts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this ahead of time?

Since avocados tend to brown after about 30 minutes, it’s best to serve this dip right after making it.

Is this dip vegan?

This dip calls for yogurt therefore it’s not vegan. However, to make it vegan you can use non dairy yogurt or sour cream.

What can I use instead of walnuts and pistachios?

You can use other nuts such as cashews.

My dip is too thick, what should I do?

If your dip is too thick, add some water (one tablespoon at a time) and blend again.

    Wow, I have never blended avocado with nuts before. It reminded me a bit like make an avocado pesto – and since I love both why not. SOO glad I gave it a whirl (haha – sorry for the pun) but this was fantastic. I will make double next time I use it as a dressing/sauce to toss with pasta for a cold pasta salad – amaaaazing!

    I prefer dips that are not too loaded with cream or cheese as I find them too heavy so this is perfect for me – light but smooth and flavorful!
