If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I am constantly pinning new food ideas. Since my major diet change over a month ago, I have been searching high and low for great vegetarian and vegan recipes.
Over the past month, I have made a few batches of soup, most of which were horrible. All things on Pinterest are not amazing. That being said, I did find something amazing. I think I have found the most amazing salad dressing ever.
Feast your eyes on this! Zesty Avocado Cilantro Buttermilk Dressing.
- 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
- 1 small jalapeno, seeds removed, leave them in if you want it spicy
- 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro
- 1 medium hass avocado
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tbsp chopped scallion
- juice of 1 lime
- 1/8 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
I made a few changes based on what I had on hand. I only had pickled jalapeno, so I tossed in 4 slices. I didn’t have a scallion so I just left it out and I substituted lemon for the lime. I also used my homemade taco seasoning instead of cumin, for something extra. You toss it all in the blender and let it go. It took less than two minutes to make. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! And the best part is that it doesn’t contain a bunch of preservatives, sugar, or mayo!
I made a taco salad for dinner and it was awesome. This recipe is definitely going to become a staple around our house.
