Avocado Lime Dressing

One of the simplest ways to healthy-up your salads is by skipping store-bought dressings. Even the "healthier" ones seem to have extra ingredients to create texture, color, or flavor that we'd never dream of using in our own kitchens. My take on a super-simple "green-goddess" dressing is tangy and smooth.


1 avocado, peeled, seed removed
1 clove garlic, peeled
Juice of one lime (or lemon)
Dash of dried minced onion
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (optional, depending on taste preference)
Salt to taste

Add first six ingredients to blender and puree, adding water if necessary to reach desired consistency. Use dressing to top salads, noodle dishes, on tacos, or as a dip for veggies and (healthy!) chips.
