Diabetes: Avocado dip

Avocado is high in monounsaturated fat and a good source of lutein, an antioxidant that may protect vision. This mixture is a great dressing for mixed green salads and is a good topping for fish or chicken.

Apples with dip

1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
2 teaspoons chopped onion
1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, onion, hot sauce and avocado. Mix to blend the ingredients evenly. Serve with baked tortilla chips or sliced vegetables.
