Avocado Dressing/Dip

I hate to admit it but its been quite a while since I've eaten a salad. I just get tired of them and I can never find a salad dressing I like. Ranch is at the top of my list on dressings but its so fattening. I just gave up on trying to find a good dressing....Until....I made my own. Its low in calories and full of healthy benefits of Avocado and Yogurt.

Not only will this make a tasty dressing for salads, It also makes an awesome dip for other things such as crackers, potato chips, pretzel and more. This stuff taste almost just like Ranch.

Now, get your blender out.
Here is how its simply made.

Avocado Dressing/Dip

1 Large Avocado
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic
1/4 cup milk (leave the milk out if you want it thick for dip)
1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt
3/4 teaspoon salt

Mix it all together in a blender

Here is a little fun fact about Avocados : The avocado is colloquially known as the Alligator Pear, reflecting its shape and the leather-like appearance of its skin

Some of the benefits of Avocado are:
Healthy Heart
Lower cholesterol
Promotes eye health
Prevents birth defects
Cures bad breath
Reduce stroke risk
protects against cancer
Skin care
Weight management
and more.......check it all out HERE for how and whys.

Maybe ill eat more salads next week using my newly found dressing.
