Variation - Roasted Red Pepper and Oregano Dip
Substitute chopped roasted red peppers and chopped pitted green olives for the avocado, fresh oregano for the cilantro and 1 tsp. hot pepper sauce for the jalapeno peppers.
Look for herbs that are rich in color, with no dark spots on the leaves or wilted leaves. Flowering herbs should not already have flowers on them.
Fresh herbs should be used soon after purchase. Place herbs in plastic bag and store in a cool, moist area of your refrigerator. Rinse before using.
