Avocado-Chèvre Spread

I love guacamole, but wanted to come up with an alternative recipe for creamy avocados. I like that this avocado-chèvre spread is a snap to make and adds lively flavor to simple meals. When zesting lemons, make sure to zest just the yellow part, as the white pith will add unwanted bitterness.–Stacey Printz

Recipe Testers Reviews

Life has been very busy lately, so I was looking for something very quick and easy to make and serve to visiting friends. This spread could not have been more perfect. It was exactly as quick and easy as it seemed, and tasted great, too. I loved the bright flavor the lemon added to the avocado. I served it with crostini, as mentioned in the serving suggestions, and I cannot wait to try it as a dip with veggies.
