2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
2 scallions, white and light green parts, sliced
1 small clove garlic, roughly chopped
2 tinned anchovy fillets, rinsed, patted dry and chopped, optional
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
salt and pepper
assorted crudites such as carrots, celery, fennel, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes

1. Combine avocado, lemon juice, parsley, basil, scallions, garlic, and anchovies, if desired in a food processor. Process, stopping and scraping down sides of bowl as needed, until smooth, with some green flecks remaining. Add mayonnaise and sour cream. Pulse to blend. Season with salt and pepper.

I have not tried this recipe. I do not know if I will. I am not a big fan of anchovies. If anyone has suggestions feel free to let me know! 😀
