No mayo or sour cream here! This egg- and dairy-free version of the beloved herb-packed dip relies on avocado for its velvety texture. Serve with our party-ready Shrimp and Crudite Platter.


  • 1 avocado, chopped (1 cup)

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest, plus 2 tablespoons fresh juice

  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 cup packed cilantro or parsley leaves, or a combination


  1. Puree avocado, lime zest and juice, vinegar, mustard, oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 3 tablespoons water in a food processor or blender until smooth. Pulse in herbs just to combine. Transfer to an airtight container; press plastic wrap directly on surface. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.
