The good ol’ green and creamy avocado comes together with herbs and buttermilk for a wonderful creamy dressing to brighten up salads.  I love a good homemade salad dressing; to me they’re tastier than store bought and well, I know exactly what’s in them.  I honestly can’t even remember the last time I bought a salad dressing from the grocery store.  Reading the labels on dressings can just be so disappointing to me.  I still sometimes walk by the dressing isle just to see if anything looks good, especially when I’m feeling too lazy to cook and make a dressing, but each time I pick up a few bottles and just keep walking.  My disappointment is the long string of ingredients, sodium levels and the sneaky sugar levels.  Sugar, HFCS and preservatives are the biggest issues I have with store bought dressings.  I just don’t get how even the supposedly “better” brands still load up on that nasty HFCS.  I simply refuse to buy those dressings so I try to only make my own.

Easy Creamy Avocado

I have an unwavering love for the creamy nutritious and delicious avocado.  I try to use avocado in my cooking all the time or just incorporate it somehow into meals whenever possible.  The avocado naturally gives a dressing more creaminess and fabulous green color which will make you fellow avocado lovers very happy.

Scallion Greens

Scallions aka green onions are an awesome way to add a mild onion flavor that will not offend onion haters.  I love scallions for that reason, plus they’re a green vegetable that’s nutritious without an overpowering flavor.  They compliment so many dishes, especially warm weather dishes.  I use them so much these days because they grow like weeds in my husband’s garden.  Don’t be surprised if you see a lot of scallions incorporated into my recipes this time of year.  They’re full of vitamins A, C, K and super low in calories so they’re a great way to add flavor without hurting the waistline.
