It feels like summer has arrived here in Newcastle. I know its weeks away but with the weather the way it is we have gone into summer mode in our house, lots of salads, cold meats etc.
In Canada Scott discovered he loved Caesar Salads and especially Croutons! So I make homemade croutons but that is for another post in the future.
I have been trying to find some salad dressings that are tasty and lower in fat, other than the oily ones or the creamy ones. I have a couple of avocados in the fridge that are very ripe and need to be used however there is only soooo much avocado you can eat at every meal.
I found with this dressing that you could dip crudité, a nice slice of crusty French stick or you can use as a salad dressing.
1 whole Avocado
1/2 clove Fresh Garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
In a food processor add the peeled clove of garlic, avocado, lime or lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides a few times. Thin the salad dressing out with a little bit of water 1/4 cup or until it reaches a desired consistency.
Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for at least a week.
