Creamy Lemon-Lime Avocado Salad Dressing Recipe

Creamy Avocado Lemon-Lime Salad Dressing RecipeYou know when you have so much to do that you don’t know where to begin?  And you just want to do nothing, which isn’t really an option?  So maybe you make a “to do” list?  (And if you’re me, you also review and/or add to a “recipe idea” list.)  Then you procrastinate more by making a perfect cup of coffee?  And so on.

That pretty much describes my morning yesterday.  That is until I reviewed my running “recipe idea” list.  You see, the idea for this avocado recipe was added to the list many months ago and for some reason yesterday it jumped out at me.  I just had to try it.  Immediately.  And so I did.

Creamy Lemon-Lime Avocado Salad DressingThis dressing will bring your salad to another level.  It’s also amazing with salmon, meat, chicken or as a dip!
