Looking for a nutritious and delicious way to amp up your salad without packing on unnecessary calories? Look no further than my new favorite recipe for an oil-free salad dressing!
1 small ripe avocado (or ½ a large one)
1 Tbsp tahini (sesame paste)
2 Tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
Fresh squeezed juice from 1 small orange
2 small garlic cloves (or more to taste)
3 Tbsp water
½ tsp sea salt
Pepper to taste
Throw all ingredients into a mini food processor or blender, and blend until smooth.
** Dressing can be poured over a fresh salad, steamed veggies, or sautéed greens
***If you’re pressed for time or don’t have all of the above ingredients, simply mash ½ an avocado and massage it into your salad greens, along with a dash of sea salt
