Have you ever tried making homemade guacamole? I just tried it and wow, is it good! It’s the perfect picnic dip recipe! Summer is about outdoors, parties, picnics and get-togethers. With my harsh Canadian winter, I try to make up for the 6 months of cold by embracing the outdoors. This means that I spend less time cooking in my kitchen and more time enjoying nice weather with the family.
We try to go on picnics on a regular basis. The best thing about picnics? The picnic foods! One of my favorite things to eat during our picnic trips is veggies, crackers and dips. It is so easy to toss some veggie in a reusable container. My kids help me with this. They like cucumbers, carrots and celery. I take care of the dip. I prefer homemade dips, as they are healthier, easy to make and budget friendly. I made the following picnic dip recipe in less than 5 minutes.
Homemade Guacamole with Goat Cheese: The Perfect Picnic Dip Recipe
I discovered goat cheese during my last shopping at Costco. A lady was hosting a sampling event and really enjoyed it. I bought the pack but then wondered how I could incorporate it in my meals. Since I had an avocado on hand, I thought it will be a great addition to a homemade guacamole recipe.
- 2 ripe Haas avocados, peeled and pitted
- around 2 TBSP Lime juice
- 3 TBSP of Goat cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
