Avocado dressing

quick and easy, I like this on any type of green salad.

1-lg. avocado
2-green onions
juice of 1/2 lemon
2-Tab. choppe parsley OR basil
salt to taste
Freshly ground coarse black pepper
3/4-C. buttermilk or more to taste
Combine all ingredients except buttermilk in blender or f/p. Blend til smooth then add buttermilk and blend again. Add enough buttermi;l to make a mix about the texture of thick cream.
This makes about 1-1/2 to 2 cups...I also like to dunk steamed cauliflour in it...
ENJOY
kadesma

Kadesma, this sounds yummy. I think it would be good on taco salad or even tacos themselves. Thanks!!

That sounds kinda similar, albeit a thicker version, of the guacamole that is served with taquitos. Speaking of which, I may have to head down to the farmers market and hit up the taquito stand there tomorrow.

Sierra, Ironchef,

I really never thought about using this with tacos or on taquitos..I've always just made up my dad's avocado dip that has garlic and mayo in it for our tacos..Think I'll try the dressing instead.. Thanks for the ideas

How did I miss that posting yesterday?!
YUM YUM YUM!!!!

(and how is it that our Dads always make great avocado dip? I still am so excited when I'm up at my parents' house on a weekend, as on Sundays, he'll find everyone in the house and bring them each a thick slice of buttered sourdough, with a huge smearing of avocado dip on top. Now that's a breakfast!)

Sure, Linda! Mom and Dad live in Santa Barabara - not much of a commute for you ;)

(They owned property up in Eugene Oregon for a while too - they love it up there)
