    I would be really curious to find out how to figure out the nutritional values…made last night and it’s absolutely delish!

    One way to get the nutritional value would be to enter the recipe on myfitnesspal.com. once all the ingredients and quantities are entered they’ll give you the info.

    Sounds and looks delicious. Wondering if the avocado turns brown in this !

      We eat it too fast to see if it turns brown. But if anyone else has feedback from their batch, please let us all know. Thanks!

    Looks so yummy. Def have to try. Good for a Lenten lunch.

    I would add finely chopped celery and onion 1/2 tsp each. I had all ingredients except curry powder and left it out. I had the best of both worlds, crunch and creamy.

      Celery and onion sound great!

  • Tammy March 13, 2017, 4:38 pm

    What could you substitute for the mayo?

    • Best Recipe Box March 17, 2017, 2:54 pm

      A few options are plain yogurt, pesto, or hummus. They will all change the flavor, so choose what tastes best to you.

    • Rebecca Stites March 17, 2017, 3:51 pm

      Plain greek yogurt :)
