I found this recipe while looking for ideas for kiwifruits. It’s a kiwi and avocado salsamole. And i happened to have a very ripe avocado waiting to be eaten, so I thought, ok, let’s make a dip and get some chips with it.
Two expensive fruit and veg, mixed into a dip. Le sigh, why are some fruits and veg just so expensive!
Anyway, of the recent months, I’ve been making my own dinner, and sometimes for my brothers at home. And it’s when I just cook what I feel like eating or cooking! I mean, one has to eat anyway and eating out seems to boring at times (not to mention full with MSG) So my dinner idea always comes right from that day itself. Then I would just drop by the grocer / supermarket after work (which is quite nearby) and get my stuffs. Usually I would get meat or fish on that day itself. I’ve learnt not to buy and store because when I do so, by some cosmic rules, I always end up eating out. So the ingredients would be…. not that fresh.

Quiche was what I wanted to eat that day. So, with whatever ingredients I had at home that day, I made caramelized onion, pancetta chips and feta cheese quiche. With the extra caramelized onion, it’s a dip for the chips as well. Man, I feel like making that, and sandwiching it with some provolone or cheese and panini it. Is it just me or do people also think of their food always ? Not really talking about cravings or which stall has the best laksa. But like making their own food. These days when I make dinner at home, simplicity is it, but also try to be a tad creative la.
Some things are really not that difficult to make, what makes it difficult, is effort and perception. How much effort you put in. No, how much effort you are willing to put in. OK la, I’m just being emo.
So! this dip, was quite yummy although it was too watery for my liking. The kiwis were quite mushy when I wanted to use them (hence making it into a dip) but because of it’s water content, a couple of mixed and some 20 minutes later, it because slightly watery. But still taste good.
- 1 large avocado, diced
- 2 green kiwifruits, peeled and chopped
- coriander leaves, lightly chopped
- 1 tsp. lime juice
- 1 tsp. honey
- dash of salt
- dash of cayenne pepper
- Stir all of the ingredients together. Taste to see if you want more lime, salt, or cayenne kick. Serve with chips. The lime will keep the avocado from browning, but this is still best if you eat it sooner rather than later.
- *If you would like to, add some finely diced chilli
