chipotle-avocado dressing and dip

Yum
 This creamy dressing is perfect for any summer salad and a great dip for quesadillas.  I used it on a corn, black bean, and tomato salad that I took to a family cook-out and it was a hit, everyone loved it!  Avocados are known for their healthy fat which reduces levels of bad cholesterol in your blood and lowers your risk of stroke and heart disease.  In addition avocados are an excellent source of potassium (containing more per weight than bananas). They are also rich in vitamin K, vitamin B9, vitamin B6, vitamin B5, vitamin C, and vitamin E.  So eat up and feel good about it :)

Servings 1 1/4 cup
Total Time 10 min

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 2 medium limes)

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (or kosher salt)
  • 1 medium garlic clove, cut up

INSTRUCTIONS

Halve and pit the avocado, then scoop the flesh out into a blender.  Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and pourable, about 15 seconds. Serve immediately.
