About the recipe
This recipe is shared by my friend Rose who brought a delicious romaine, corn and avocado salad for a holiday lunch we had last December. Think green on green – haha. I wonder if that was intentional because of the holidays? All this salad needed is tomatoes and we would’ve had a Christmas themed salad 😃🥗.
The salad was a huge hit with everyone! We were all intrigued by this green creamy salad dressing made with avocados. First time tasting it, and we loved it!
The creamy dressing is made with a ripe avocado, herbs and lime juice for a decadent flavor. If your’e looking for an alternative to a creamy ranch or Ceaser dressing, given this dressing a try! An added bonus is that it’s made with good for you avocado.
