What is for dinner? It seems to often be the question of the day! I feel like somedays it takes way too much effort to come up with something that sounds good that everyone will eat. Last week I was looking for a dressing to put on top of leftover taco meat and some greens that I was going to call my unplanned leftover dinner “taco salad”. Here is what I came up with… a quick and easy Avocado Lime dressing with a few things I already had.
It was so easy I threw it all in my Vitamix and had a quick and easy revamp to boring old leftovers.
Avacado Lime Dressing
2 pitted avocados
1/2 cup avocado oil or olive oil
3/4- 1 cup cilantro
5 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 seeded, chopped jalapeno
Blend and season with salt and pepper if necessary. No Vitamix? Any blender, immersion blender or food processor will work!
So that night we had taco salad but it makes a ton. So the next day I made this salad for lunch.
It was super easy too. Just mixed greens, fresh berries and leftover grilled chicken.
I STILL have leftovers and I think the dressing would be a good topping for :
*anything you would use mayo or sour cream on
* chips…yes corn chips 🙂 yum!
*breakfast hash….check the blog later for this one!
Come on, use your imagination and let me know what you come up with!
By the way, yes this is paleo. But it has been tested out on my fellow blogger, Ang and she gives it the seal of approval. See, I just might get some of you to eat paleo after all 🙂
