Avocado Fries with Avocado Dipping Sauce

Avocado Fries with Avocado Dipping Sauce

Ok.

I am not sure what else to say about this post, but it is full of green.

Not the kind you put in your wallet (more like the kind that is always leaving my wallet).

No, not the kind you walk on in the summer.

Nah, not St. Patty’s day beer or broccoli.

Avocado my friends.

Avocado.

Can you believe that when I was younger that I actually didn’t even like avocado?

::audience gasps::

Tis true, food bats. Tis True.

My love of avocado began in high school when I lived in the Philly area. My Grandad was visiting my family rather regularly because he had a shop associated with his business about 10 miles from where we lived.

Strange, since he lives in Kansas City, KS it was amazing to me that he had a place so close to where my family moved from when we were in KS.

Small world huh?

Anyways, I remember my Dad being out of town and my Mom had gotten oh, probably 10-12 avocados from the store and was making guacamole for Mexican night.

Mexican night is staple in my family, we probably have it at least once a week

Well, at that point, I didn’t TOUCH avocado, let alone guacamole.

My Grandad told me, I needed to buck up and try it because there was nothing to not like.

So I did.

And you know what?! I loved it.

Then my Mom, Grandad and I proceeded to eat 10-12 avocados that were made into delicious guacamole for about 3 hours. We never did make it to the rest of the meal ;-)

Today, I am sharing with you avocado fries, which I saw and just HAD to try plus a healthy avocado dip that can be paired with just about anything.

Let me tell you. This did NOT disappoint.

If you like avocados? You have to try this.

I used almond flour for the crunch, but you are more than welcome to use bread crumbs, panko or even coconut. Whatever your heart desires.

Seriously…how good do these look.
