Shabbat is the Jewish celebration of the day of rest and it is supposed to be a celebration with family and friends. So, I pulled together a fantastic meal and we all gathered around the table for a traditional Shabbat, blessings over the wine, bread, and candles and all. I will be sharing the recipes that I used for tonight's dinner tomorrow, but first, I have an awesome recipe that a threw together as an appetizer as all that not-running and cooking made me hungry far before dinner-time.
Strawberry Avocado Dip (adapted from Eat. Drink. Love)
2 avocados, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 red pepper, chopped
2 tbsp lime juice
salt and pepper
Mix everything together and toss with the lime juice. Serve with tortilla chips, or as a sweeter option, cinnamon-sugar chips.
