It looks like it will be perfect weather for the Shamrock’n half marathon this weekend, can’t complain about highs in the 70s and slightly overcast. Let’s just hope my performance can hang in there too because my legs are feeling tired after my final speed training session at the gym. The pups will be ready for some outdoor time this weekend too, Miko has been a little stir crazy hording his toys.
And sweet Leela has been very clingy following me around waiting for snacks or that magical W word.
We could all use some outdoor time some this weekend. And I need need to use up a big bag of avocados I bought because they all decided to ripen at once. Thank goodness for storing them in the fridge and the endless recipe inspiration they can provide. It seems a lot of restaurants have some sort “house dressing” salad dressing recipe and it’s usually a creamy dressing with a versatile flavor. But they’re also usually packed with the type of ingredients that turns a decent salad into a health nightmare – heavy cream, buttermilk (ick), oil, and sugar. Why when there’s avocado? This avocado house dressing has a simple fresh herb flavor that works with any salad you can throw together, is tangy, thick, rich, and creamy. Best of all it’s all that without oil, dairy, or sugar.
Avocado House Dressing
- 1 avocado, seeded and scooped
- 1 clove of raw garlic
- 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 3 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp. minced parsley (or throw fresh in blender to taste)
- 1 tsp. miso paste
- ¼ cup water (or as needed to desired texture)
- pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 4 servings.
The texture on this dressing does not disappoint, it’s thick, rich, and perfect for coating.
It has a tangy garlic flare with bright parsley that works with stronger flavored salad ingredients like olives and chopped pickles – I love adding chopped pickles to salads lately.
It’s smooth and creamy texture is comforting and satisfying, great for a filling meal salad.
Keep the house healthy with this dressing.
