This is one of my favorite homemade dressings!  Not only is it healthy and full of flavor, it just takes a couple of minutes to prepare.   This is the perfect dressing for a taco salad or tossed with crispy romaine, cucumbers and croutons (it’s amazing on top of any sort of Mexican dish too)!

If you reduce the liquid, this makes an amazing Avocado Dip for chips or veggies and I even spread it on sandwiches in place of mayo for a healthy kick!

Avocados are a true super food containing tons of nutrients, fibre and healthy fats!  Here are just a few of the benefits of enjoying Avocados:

    • Lowers cholesterol
    • Packed with vitamins including potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, and vitamin B6
    • Contain Fiber (keeps you feeling full)
    • Tastes delicious

  18. Instead of buttermilk how would dour cream work in your avacado dressing?

    • I think it would be delicious but it would likely be a bit thick (perfect for dipping). You might need to thin it out a bit to make it pourable.

  19. A Must Try.

  20. I wish this would tell how many calories.

  21. Cannot wait to try many of these dishes!
