Avocado dressing

I guess I’m on a green kick, but this dressing is so delicious and full of flavor. I love homemade dressings because you control the amount of ingredients. Eating healthy during the week is key in my diet but it doesn’t mean that my weekends are on that plan too. I try to keep everything in moderation and portion control. I don’t like to deprive myself from not enjoying a piece of cake or that bowl of pasta.

Salads don’t have to be boring. Get creative by adding different veggies and making homemade dressings. Your body will thank you in the end.

1 tablespoon evoo
Salt & pepper, to taste
