Zesty Garlic Flavored Avocado Yogurt Dip.

Zesty Garlic Flavored Avocado Yogurt Dip.

As I’ve indicated in the past, I’m addicted to avocados or zabouca and/or pear as it’s also known in the Caribbean. However the variety of avocado grown in the Caribbean is much different than the ones you’d get from California, Mexico and other Central American countries. Ours are much bigger, different texture (less creamy and more cheese […]
