This dish is called a salad but is really more like a dip, a sort of Levantine guacamole. Spices, yogurt and lemon juice add layers of earthy flavor and bright acidity. We liked it served with pita chips, but it can also be served as a side dish with grilled or roasted meats and seafood.
ripe avocados, halved and pitted
tablespoons plain whole-milk yogurt, plus more to serve
01Scoop the flesh from the avocado halves into a medium bowl. Using a fork or potato masher, mash the avocados to a coarse puree. Stir in the yogurt, oil, garlic, chili, lemon juice, coriander, cumin, paprika, ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Taste, then season with salt and pepper.

For those of us who have an extensive spice pantry, it would be great to have a recipe using the traditional ingredients that Milkstreet often substitutes. Please consider publishing alternate recipes if you have the traditional ingredients (sumac in this case).
