  1. I love the sound of this dressing. I'm always looking for new dressing recipes because I eat a ton of salads and I like to mix things up. I usually have these ingredients on hand!

    1. Hey, thank you! Avocado dressing is delicious! If you like Guacamole...then this is perfect and a great, healthy, nutritious addition to a salad. I wanted to make this recipe with ingredients that would usually be in a fridge/kitchen so it can be make sporadically. Hope you enjoy! Happy cooking x
