Even though I'll never give up cheeseburgers, I've been incorporating a lot more salads into my diet lately. This yummy recipe is so simple to prepare, and only takes about 5-10 minutes of your time. Even better, there's not a lot of complicated or expensive ingredients to buy. Yay!
1 Ripe Avocado, Pitted and Peeled
1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
2 Scallions, trimmed and chopped
1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Cayenne Pepper or Pepper Flakes (Optional)
Combine the avocado, yogurt, scallions and lime juice with 1/2 cup of water in a blender, then puree until smooth. Add more water, if needed, by the tablespoon, to adjust as needed for thickness and consistency.
Season with salt and pepper. If you like your food to have a kick, feel free to add pepper flakes or cayenne pepper.
This dressing may be stored in the fridge for no more than 3 days. Stir until smooth right before using.
