Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing
Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing can be served with a salad or as a dip for vegetables. It’s bright & full of healthy ingredients like avocado & Greek yogurt.
Whenever I see avocados on sale at my grocery store (10 for $10 – best deal ever!), I can’t help but buy a million of them. My daughter, my youngest son and I can eat avocados every day so they really don’t go to waste when I bring home a bagful, especially since I’ve learned that keeping them in my fridge helps them last longer. Normally I just serve our avocados sliced up in a salad, smashed on toast or straight up for the little ones, but every now and then I get adventurous and throw them into a smoothie or make a dressing like this Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing.
I love including avocados in quesadillas like these Bean and Avocado Quesadillas (SO good!) or as a topping for Black Bean and Egg Tostadas (these are not just for breakfast – I love them for lunch and dinner too).
I normally opt for oil and vinegar based salad dressings when it comes to salad, but every now and then I crave a creamy dressing like this, especially since I know it’s full of healthy ingredients like avocado and Greek yogurt. The avocado definitely adds to the creaminess.
This dressing is thick, and full of flavor – it would be a great topping along with some salsa for a healthy taco salad, or a great dip for your veggie plate. I tossed a couple of heaping tablespoons in a big Mexican inspired salad last week and loved it so much. There is no wrong way to enjoy this creamy avocado lime dressing in my opinion. 🙂
Hope you are all having a great week!Print
