Creamy Avacado Dressing

May is here, spring has sprung, and the trees are starting to turn a beautiful bright green. My eating habits tend to follow the weather, if its warm and bright, then my body just craves salads. When winter comes, eating salad just becomes a chore, I run from them towards soups and stews and all those comfort type foods. While I am craving salads, I also have this weird inability to eat the same thing two days straight, so I need to create a variety. I find the easiest way to change it up throughout the week is with different salad dressings. I can make a couple different ones and just store them in the fridge for the week. I made this dressing with a good amount of lime juice because I was fearful the avacado would turn green on me without plenty of acid, and it turned out I really liked the tart lime with the creamy avacado. I was able to keep this dressing in a jar for a week and it stayed a bright green for me. I enjoy the punch the garlic brings to this dressing, but if you thing a whole clove might be a little strong for you than just use a half of a clove, or omit it all together. This recipe is also a great way to use up leftover avacado, when I slice up avacados for burgers or fajitas sometimes I am left with just half of the fruit left, and I hate tossing that half out!! Just halve the rest of the ingredients.

I start by halving my avacado, I love that beautiful color! Then get my lime ready.

More beautful green! I am done with my cutting board now! Everything just gets added to the blender.

I have in there the avacado, a bunch of cilantor, lime juice, a garlic clove, salt and pepper. Now time for my helper.

I add in my water and oil, and just blend till it is a nice creamy consistency. I like to give it a little taste just to make sure I dont need any more salt or pepper and it is good to go! So quick and easy!

Is there enough green in this post?!
