I was chosen as a tester for a promotional campaign of a new wine-based cocktail. This is a delicious dip recipe that uses ponzu as a secret ingredient. It surprisingly goes well with plain rice as well!
Cut the avocado into 5 mm cubes and sprinkle on the lemon juice. Season it with salt and pepper, then mix in the ponzu.
If you are not fond of the spiciness of the onions, sprinkle on some salt (not listed), rub, rinse, and drain it. I don't mind its spiciness, so I just cut it and did nothing to it.
Combine the avocado with the onions and canned tuna (drain the oil), and add as much mayonnaise as you prefer.
It goes well with French bread, baguette, or crackers! It's perfect to accompany a wine-based cocktail. It can be a great filling for a sandwich as well.
This avocado dip's secret is the ponzu. Put it on a bowl of rice, drizzle on the mixture of wasabi and soy sauce, and enjoy the delicious avocado dip over rice!
Story Behind this Recipe
Since I was chosen as a tester for "Kirin's wine-based cocktail", I came up with a recipe that goes well with it, and I would like to share this dip which is our family's staple appetizer. I love both tuna and avocado and came up with this easy recipe. The ponzu is the secret ingredient! Please try it over rice as in Step 5.
-Ripened avocado will taste better. -Lemon juice is used to prevent the avocado from discoloring and also to pre-season it. I sprinkled on 5 drops of Pokka brand's lemon juice. -Since it's an easy and quick recipe, there is no hint in particular.
