If you know me or are familiar with my recipes, you know that I LOVE healthy fats and greens. This tasty dressing contains avocado, which is chockful of heart-healthy fat, and another one of my favorites, cilantro. Combined with a variety of other ingredients called for in this recipe, well you and your friends will be dancing with joy this coming St Patrick’s day. I have appropriately titled it: St. Patrick’s Day Avocado Dressing!
Interestingly enough avocado is actually a fruit! This delicious “fruit” is unique in that it contains both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. These being the best quality of fats that you can consume and they’re also associated with improved blood lipids. Add to this the fact that avocado contains dietary fiber and you have yourself a winner for any paleo meal. Those of you who are on the KETO diet will adore this as well.
You’ll be surprised to find that you won’t need sour cream or mayo to make this dressing. The key ingredient here is Organic Gemini horchata; horchata made from the terrific superfood tigernuts!). You can read more about Organic Gemini at my site. Also, for all my PaleOmazing readers, Organic Gemini is offering a 15% off discount off the wonderful products on their site: www.OrganicGemini.com. You simply use coupon code “PaleoVegan” at checkout. This code is good now and for as long as you are reading this on my site. A terrific deal!
I really enjoy serving this dressing in a variety of recipes, such as on burgers, as a dip for sweet potato chips, in a salad, alongside a juicy steak, or as the basic veggie dip so common at a gathering. The possibilities are endless! Email me and let me know the way you served it!
Have a terrific and healthy St. Patrick’s Day. Be sure to wear and eat green!Print
