Leela was having a case of the Mondays yesterday and perfectly happy to hide in her bed.
Can’t blame her, it was tempting when my alarm went off. Smokey stayed parked on her favorite couch blanket all day.
Not a bad way to spend Monday for sure! I spent some of it getting creative with ginger because I have a large box of it to use up thanks to a trip to Costco! Did you know cacao powder, peanut powder, Garden Of Life’s RAW Chocolate protein powder, and frozen bananas blended with a large chunk of raw ginger actually makes a good smoothie? I was feeling daring this morning and it worked out well. And so did this tangy and creamy ginger avocado dressing. Blending it with fresh rosemary, curry powder, and garlic was a little scary, but ended up being a great flavor combo with a silky smooth texture.
Ginger Herb Dressing
- 1” thick chunk of fresh ginger
- 1 avocado, seeded and scooped
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- 1 tsp. curry powder
- 1 small clove of garlic
- ½ cup water
- 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.
The thick and creamy dressing perfectly coated a huge kale salad with tangy and bright rosemary herb flavor.
And worked well with the sweet chopped apple added to the salad for a playful blend.
And every salad is great topped with nutritional yeast, right?
Feeling daring? Try this bright and fresh avocado dressing on your next hearty salad.
