this was an amazing salad dressing...loved it

Would eat with a spoon

This dressing made use of stuff I had laying around, and it's insanely good. I'm already thinking about putting it on grilled chicken in the summer or just dipping veggies in it. Amazing. Can't stop tasting from the container!! Needed a little water to thin it out but that was no problem.

So quick and easy

Why is there never any nutritional info on these recipes?

So good in so many ways...I'm talking lick-the-spoon good!

The diet I'm on allows for 1/2 an avocado with dinner. I was looking for different ways to eat that avocado and this is it!

Here's what I do differently:

1. I use Greek Non Fat yogurt - higher protein, far less sugar, and adds a great, tangy taste!

2. I use honey instead of sugar - just my preference, not sure if it's really that much 'healthier'

3. I have used lemon juice and yuzu juice (bottled product found in Japanese markets) in lieu of lime juice. All work well.

4. Use a food processor instead of a blender! It's really difficult to get everything to blend using a standard blender. I found myself trying to punch down the ingredients all the time. With the food processor, no problemo.

5. Double the me on this one :)

Tasty, many uses, healthy
