While making dinner one day I simultaneously grabbed an avocado and some yogurt and thought, surely these would make an exceptional sauce. Indeed they did!  Adding the ingredients below, I ended up with this tangy, fresh, spicy, and so so soOo good sauce/spread/dip! I've made it several times since initial conception and it's great on burgers, rice (yes!), various hot sandwiches, grilled chicken, and veggies. Definite crowd pleaser. 

You'll need:

  • 2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • ½ medium avocado mashed

  • ½ tbsp brine from pikliz

  • zest from 1 lime

  • juice from ½ lime

  • ½ tsp salt

Serve with Salted Plantain Chips


Mix ingredients together until smooth for a refreshing spread or dip.

Enjoy in as many ways as your big heart desires! Bon appetit!



A great hot dog

You’ll need:

  • Hot dog links (preferably natural or organic)
  • Buttery soft buns from your local bakery
  • Pikliz
  • Avocado thinly sliced
  • Ketchup
  • Chopped tomatoes

Serve with Salted Plantain Chips


We prefer grilling the links for a nice smokey flavor and crispy bite - leave links on grill until thoroughly cooked. Also, toasting the hot dog buns adds for great texture and flavor: lightly brush sides and top of buns with vegetable oil or melted butter and toast each side.


Place horizontal layers of avocado slices inside buns, top with hot dog, ketchup, tomatoes, + pikliz.

Invite some friends. Pop open some craft beer. Bon appetit!
