I’ve been taking a salad to work every day for lunch, and I’ve been experimenting with new dressings to keep things interesting. Today I made Creamy Cilantro-Avocado Dressing from eatingwell.com. 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: the Cuisinart Smart Stick hand blender (affiliate link).
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 threw all of the ingredients for the dressing into it. A few quick pulses, and I was done.
