We have a house guest for the next few days, we’re dog sitting my mom’s, uh, hefty dog. And he’s camera shy hiding behind the couch when he sees it in my hand. So this is the best shot I could get just before he hid.
What breed would you say he is? The shelter he was adopted from says chihuahua min-pin mix, but there is nothing mini about him! Miko has been on overdrive protecting his toys and dinner.
If you find this Chile Lime seasoning blend at Trader Joe’s, you’ll want to protect it for yourself!
Some how these feisty little granules have a strong and bright lime flavor with perfect amount of heat. When I first tasted it, I couldn’t wait to try it in an avocado dressing and this simple recipe will not disappoint.
Spicy Lime Avocado Dressing
- 1 avocado, seeded and scooped
- 1 tsp. Trader Joe’s or other chile lime seasoning blend
- 1 tsp. dried cilantro (or fresh of course)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- ½ cup water, as needed
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy. Makes 2-4 servings.
I threw everything into this meal salad, it was a veggie-packed delight to start the week with home grown sprouts, broccoli slaw, organic greens, beans, tomato, purple carrot ribbons, and cabbage.
Love a plate full of vibrant colors. And the kicky avocado dressing added a rich and creamy flare, tangy and savory with a slight amount of heat that wasn’t overpowering.
Chopped melon for dessert made this a bright celebration of the last days of summer.
