Recipe: Baby Kale Guacamole

Today is World Photo Day and Florette challenged me to put together a photogenic salad creation to celebrate.

I've created a city skyline inspired dip bowl - perfect for summer BBQs (because we have to squeeze a few more in between now and autumn) or as a lazy lunch option with warm pitta bread for dipping. Best of all it only takes ten minutes to make because summer is not the time to be in the kitchen any longer than necessary. This is the first time I've made guacamole that I've been happy with - that doesn't just taste like mashed avocado. The trick is lots of lime juice and lots of coriander.

For the yogurt dip:

200g Greek yogurt
15g chia seeds

Mix the yogurt and chia and set to one side while you make the guacamole. The chia seeds will make the dip super thick and creamy and while they don't have a particular taste they are packed with calcium and Omega 3s.

For the kale guacamole:

2 avocados
1 lime
1 small red chilli
small bunch of coriander
handful of Florette baby kale
handful of cherry tomatoes
pinch of sea salt

Mash the avocados with the salt and lime juice. Finely chop the coriander, cherry tomatoes and chill and mix in. Add another squeeze of lime juice before serving to keep the avocados bright and green.

  1. That looks delicious! I've never thought of adding chia seeds to a yoghurt dip to make it thicker and creamier - what a great idea!
