Avocado Dressing

To make any salad delicious and healthy, dressing is vital. Yes you heard right, not all salad dressing is healthy.  Especially if you buy salad dressing from store, keep eye on its ingredients and calories.

I like to make my salad dressing at home. And why not, making salad dressing at home is easy & cheap. I am sure once you start making them at home, you will never go back to store-bought one.

Now back to this Avocado salad dressing. I keep it very simple with few ingredients and no oil. If you like you can add some olive oil, cilantro or parsley leaves to this dressing. For me easy recipes with few ingredients make me prepare that recipe more often and continuity is very important for healthy eating.
