This Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing is incredibly delicious and very versatile.
It can be made as thick or thin as you like to suit whatever you are serving it with. Add some extra liquid to it and it becomes an amazing salad dressing or vinaigrette which coats and clings to the leaves perfectly, or reduce the liquid and it ends up thick like mayonnaise. It can then be spread in sandwiches as a mayonnaise substitute, dolloped on veggie burgers, baked potatoes, burritos, tacos, used as a dip for chips, chopped vegetables and it also goes perfectly with falafel.
This dressing keeps well in the fridge for a few days. Don't be worried if the colour changes a little. It won't affect the flavour.
There's more where that came from!
