Avo Dressing [& Green Veggie Bowl]

Confession time. While on vacation, the closest things to a vegetable that I ate were pickles, coleslaw and the teeny tiny chunks of tomato and lettuce on my tacos. Talk about nutritious… I firmly believe that life is all about balance, but I struggled with balance as every restaurant in North Carolina had hush puppies and an assortment of pies. After a week of inhaling seafood and every carb, I needed a fresh start. In the moment, that meant green EVERYTHING. I went crazy in the produce section at my grocery store and for someone who has a love/hate relationship with veggies, I was pleasantly surprised with the result – avocado dressing for my green veggie bowl (insert heart eyeballs emoji here). Since I made this dressing a few weeks ago, I haven’t been able to stop craving it!

Dice your avocados and juice your limes. Throw your avocado, lime juice, water, cilantro and spices into your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. For a more liquid consistency, add more water.

See, I told you it was easy. You can add this dressing to any of your favorite salads. I added mine to a giant veggie bowl that had spiralized zucchini, fresh green beans, broccoli, edamame and peas. It was SO yummy!

I highly encourage you to try this recipe out. You won’t regret it!

Naturally,

Ari
