Avocado Green Onion Dressing+ Kale Crunch Salad

Avocados are one of those amazing foods that can enhance almost any dish. Not only are they delicious, they are full of fiber and good fat so they provide long-lasting energy. Sometimes I’ll sprinkle sea salt on half an avocado and eat it directly with a spoon for a quick snack or light breakfast.

If you only have a few ingredients on hand you can make a pretty awesome salad dressing by mashing an avocado with lemon juice and olive oil. For something slightly more complex, try my Avocado Green Onion Dressing. It’s so creamy and flavorful, just add kale and you have the perfect side salad!

A simple kale salad with this dressing can be a great base for a veggie burger or side dish for grilled vegetables. I recently used this dressing on Kale Crunch Salad. It was the perfect lunch- crunchy, creamy, sweet and tangy.
