California Avocado Goat Cheese Dip with Crispy Prosciutto
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- On a parchment lined baking tray, line up prosciutto without overlapping, cover with another sheet of parchment paper and another baking tray. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until crispy, take care to not overcook/burn the prosciutto, remove and cool.
- Combine all other ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined and smooth, scraping down sides as needed, take care not to overmix. (Or combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together until smooth with a whisk or fork.)
- Transfer dip to a serving bowl and crumble crispy prosciutto on top.
Variations: Instead of goat cheese in the dip, Greek yogurt, feta or cream cheese can be substituted.
Beverage Pairing: Enjoy with a glass of crisp white wine like Sauvignon Blanc.
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
