Strawberry Avocado Dip

Today has been a really lovely day.  First off, it's Friday and even thought I am on summer vacation, Friday still feels amazing.  Second, according to my half marathon training schedule, today is a "rest day," and I really needed that.  Instead, I did this awesome abs workout that I found here.  And third, I cooked and baked all day to make my family a lovely Shabbat dinner.

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)




Ingredients:
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

Directions:
Mix everything together and toss with the lime juice.  Serve with tortilla chips, or as a sweeter option, cinnamon-sugar chips.
Enjoy :)
