  1. Add the greens, chives, garlic, lemon juice, avocado, olive oil, salt and pepper in a blender and pulse until broken down and easy to dollop with a spoon (adding a tablespoon of water if needed to thin and get the blender going).
  2. Serve smeared on toast, veggies or cheese sandwiches or drizzled over grilled fish, fried eggs, savory yogurt bowls or roasted vegetables. Or, transfer to a container that just fits and top with a little more oil (to preserve the color) and refrigerate up to 1 week.

Cook’s Note

In place of the avocado, you can swap in 1/4 cup of something with body, such as nuts, miso or tahini.
