I’ve been eating a lot of salads recently, enjoying the last of the summer produce from my garden, and I often make on of my favourite dressings: Creamy Cilantro-Avocado Dressing fromeatingwell.com. It's fantastic! Creamy and a little bit tangy from the yogurt and lime juice. It would also be great as a topping for fish tacos, in a wrap, as a dip….
As well as being healthy and tasty, it is also really easy to make, which you know is important to me. I used one of my favourite kitchen tools: my hand blender.
My younger brother bought me my first hand blender years ago. Although it didn’t come with any attachments, it was the perfect tool for blending soups and sauces right in the pot without having to transfer to a food processor. Eventually it wore out, so I treated myself to a new one that came with a chopper and whisk. The chopper is great for making small batches. I throw all of the ingredients for the dressing into it. A few quick pulses, and I am done.
