Tastes of Harvest - Avocado & Endive Appetizer

Endive - the healthy, crunchy, elegant yet affordable replacement for chips & crackers. We love it with everything from hummus to salsa to spinach & artichoke dip. Simply cut the end of the endive, separate the loose leaves, and then use the endive as either a "carrier" (see photo below) or as a "dipper". The best part? Endive is loaded with vitamins & minerals and is a great source of complex fibers. Plus, its infinitely more stylish than any chips & crackers from a bag or box. Cheers to healthy dipping!



2 medium sized avocados

1 T lime juice

2 T plain greek yogurt

Peel, pit, and mash avocados; set aside. Combine 1 tablespoon lime juice, 2 tablespoons greek yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro in a small bowl; stir in avocados. Spoon avocado mixture evenly into endive leaves.
