Hello Creamy Avocado Dressing...
This creamy avocado dressing is both versatile and delicious and would go well with many types of salads. It’s a tasty and is suitable for paleo, AIP and vegan recipes. One whole, ripe avocado will make a batch large enough for around 3 salads (less or more, depending on the number of servings). Store it in an airtight container and it lasted well for up to 5 days in the fridge. You can also add this avocado dressing to make a creamy chicken salad, prawn salad, Caesar (add some chopped anchovies to the dressing), Mexican quinoa salad, grilled or roasted vegetable salad and more. It’s also thick enough to serve with a plate of cut-up vegetables for dipping.
