Last week I made this dressing for one of my client's - that went on a Mediterranean "Roasted Cauliflower Salad" and let me say - this dressing was SPECTACULAR. So creamy, so fresh, so yummy! You could literally spoon it out with your fingers and eat it by itself if no one was looking.
It's so easy to make and would be great on so many things like a Taco Salad - maybe take some Beyond Meat and mix it with your taco seasonings, add a little lettuce, chips, tomato, vegan cheese and top it with this?? Oh my!
Or maybe, a Black Bean Quinoa and Corn Salad with cilantro and sliced avocado - yea! That's the ticket. You can pretty much use it on anything and it would be delicious. My client LOVED it.
So I knew when I posted the photo on Facebook that folks would ask for the recipe and sometimes I find the time to jot them down, sometimes I don't and then have to go back and do so.
That being said, I would love to share this deliciousness with you and just know you are going to love it!
You're welcome :)
Creamy Avocado Dressing (Vegan, Dairy-free, GF)
To make the dressing, chop avocado, place the avocado place in food processor. Add the yogurt, dill, lemon juice and water. Blend until smooth and creamy. You may have to add more juice or more lemon - play around until you get it to just the right consistency. (The lemon juice will keep the avocado from turning - and this should keep in the fridge a couple of days).

If there's one thing I hear over and over it's the phrase "It's so hard to eat healthy without spending a ton of money." And I get it, the thought of eating organic and sustainable can be considered a little pricey when you're comparing organic broccoli at around $3.95 a bunch to regular broccoli at about $2.99. But let's think about it for a moment:
But these are truths that we need to face. These are the facts and are just a few of the things I will be talking about at this weekends event "Eating Healthy on a Budget" with my good friends at The Nature Gallery Yoga Studio. (click the link above to find out more)
I am deeply passionate about eating healthy and helping others in their journey to a healthier lifestyle and I love sharing knowledge when I'm able. And these items are just a few things I will be covering in this Sunday's upcoming talk and food demonstration along with:
I've even put together a week's worth of healthy meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with the ingredient list to show you that yes, it actually can be done on a budget.
There is limited space and seats are filling up quickly so don't wait until the last minute, go ahead and reserve your spot today HERE and let's have some fun while learning to eat clean. Oh, and I'll be showing you how to prepare a dish and passing out some healthy grub too.
