We've been trying to eat...healthier. I know, I know, everyone is, but I spied a few numbers on the scale the past few months that I haven't seen before and some of my shirts have become a little snug.
I figured it was time to start to explore my options.
Thinking about some of the foods I like to eat around town, I remembered the grilled avocados and avocado salad at a local Mexican place down the road. Love that stuff. After doing a little research and recipe tweaking I think I have perfected the dressing. The grilled avocado is easy - just use some Montreal Steak seasoning and olive oil. Done!
Here's what you need for the dressing.
- 1 Avocado
- 1-2 Clove Garlic
- 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 2 Tablespoons Lime Juice
- 1 Teaspoon Cumin
- 1 Teaspoon Agave
- 1 Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 Teaspoons of Green Hot Sauce (I use Speedy's #46 Citrus Jalapeno)
- 1/4 Cup Water
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Before You Start:
This is pretty simple to put together. I normally use a food processor to blend this, but I've also used a blender to get the same results. So basically what I'm saying is grab a food processor or blender...you'll need it.
You can adjust the amount of you water you use to adjust the consistency of the dressing - more water to thin, less water to thicken.
- Add all ingredients into the food processor and blend till smooth.
- If you have a little bit of time, let it rest in the fridge for about 15 minutes - though this is not necessary.
Oh, I wanted to mention that I like to add avocado to my dressing too. Love that texture of the avocado chunks mixed with the crispy lettuce. Enjoy!
