What does “recovery” mean to you on a personal level?

This dip is a Hermer household staple. It is easy to whip up when friends stop by, and my munchkins love dipping their crudités in a bowl of PFG while I finish making their supper.

Serves 4 to 6


  • ½ cup peas, fresh or frozen
  • 3 ripe avocados, halved, pits removed
  • ½ cup diced feta cheese
  • 1 chili, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped mint
  • Juice from 2-3 limes
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced


  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add the peas and cook for 1 minute. Drain and place in a bowl of ice water or run under cold water until completely cool. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Place the avocados, feta cheese, chili, mint, lime juice, and peas in a food processor or a blender. Blend until creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and scatter jalapeno over the top.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, or veggies.
