Avocados are something that we basically always have a craving for. It’s one of the most versatile foods out there, and pretty much makes everything better. If we each had a dollar for every time we said “Avocado would be really good on this.” we could probably quit school and go straight to retirement.
We understand that not everyone likes avocados (gasp!) but if you fall into that category, we implore you to give them another chance. There are so many different ways to use them, and they are so so good for you!
These fruits contain so many nutrients, including fibre, potassium, Vitamin E and the B-vitamins, as well as helping the body absorb the fat-soluble vitamins. For more avocado nutrition info, go here [source] <– a whole website dedicated to avocados! We must be in heaven.
We use avocados for so much more than guacamole and you can be sure that they will be making a regular appearance on our blog!
Today we had a craving for two things: Avocado (obviously) and salad (also somewhat of a given). Our first thought of course was to just slice up an avocado, top it on our salad and be done with it, but instead, we got a little more creative.
So we made salad dressing instead! Avocado lime dressing, to be more specific. Oh Boy was this delicious! As a matter-of-fact, we believe that this stuff could convert any so-called “avocado-hater”! Bold statement, yes, but that is how extremely delicious this is.
The flavour is really bright and refreshing, but super creamy at the same time. It also doesn’t have a really strong avocado-y taste, because of the lime, which is why we think this is a recipe that even people who don’t like avocados could get into.
And you know what else? It only has 5 ingredients. 5 pretty inexpensive ingredients, too, so it won’t break your bank.
This is probably one of the healthiest salad dressings you will ever eat, and quite possibly one of the most delicious, if we do say so ourselves 😉
Ridiculously easy, ridiculously healthy, ridiculously delicious. We dare you not to lick the food processor clean!
