Sarah's Spectacular Dip!

Oh, how I love this recipe!!!  People just go crazy when they taste this for the first time.  They can't stop themselves from eating it and can't stop saying "this is so delicious"!  My kids always ask to make this when the weather gets warm.  While you can make this any time of the year, we always serve this at summer parties. I am sure that is why my kids start thinking about it when summer rolls around.  Add as much or as little of any of the ingredients...any combination will work.  A simple, easy, and delicious recipe!
This recipe is from one of my most cherished friends, Sarah.  I remember the first time I ate this at Sarah's house...I just couldn't get enough.  I love the taste, texture, and looks - pretty colors. :)  In the picture above I have the avocado pits in the dip ...a great tip that came from Sarah.  Keeping the pits in helps to keep the avocado from turning brown.  I love learning wonderful tips like that.  I hope you make this for your family.  I know it will become a favorite, just like at our house.  Enjoy. xo
