Since my dear hubby had a stroke last weekend, for Valentines Day, I decided to forgo my favorite dinner, steak on the grill, for something a little more heart healthy and I came up with this recipe.

I never liked avocado until I had a salad at a restaurant that had avocado in it. I figured I’d try it. Surprise…it was really good in that salad. This recipe is not anything like the salad I had at that restaurant a few years back, but it is really, really good!

This dip is delicious and can be served as an appetizer with crunchy raw vegetables and crackers or served on crusty bread. I use a nice gluten free baguette cut on the diagonal and toasted in the oven to make it crunchy.
