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 recipe...trust me on this one :)

Tasty, many uses, healthy

Refreshing and light!

Served it over stir fried shrimp, onions, and broccoli slaw for a delicious contrast in temperature and texture.

Love the healthy fats and the cool creamy texture without oil.

Awesome!!!

Loved this dressing. I substituted sour cream for the yogurt because that's what I had. Also was very thick so I just thinned it with water. Still amazing taste....
