Author Notes: This recipe was a bit of a slap-dash idea, coming together just before house guests arrived, and I was without a pre-dinner cocktail nosh. I found a few ripe avacados in the bin, but a fruit too short for what I needed. A stash of spinach seemed like a worthy and recipe increasing addition, and thus this brilliant green dip. Even better, it keeps its color without the obligatory plastic wrap overtop. A friend suggested it was "food52 worthy" so here it is! —ACK Kitchen
