One of the changes I am making is to eat a large, fresh salad every day. But salad gets boring, right? Maybe not.
Avocado Wasabi Dressing
1 ripe avocado, halved and pit removed
1 Tbs. Wasabi paste* (or more, to taste)
3 Tbs. seasoned rice vinegar
the juice of one lemon or lime
salt and pepper, to taste
Water to thin, if desired
Scoop the flesh of the avocado into a food processor. Add other ingredients and process until smooth. Let sit in the fridge for at least one hour to let the flavors blend.
*Wasabi paste is in a green tube and is found in the Asian foods section of the grocery store. It is the spicy green stuff you get with Japanese food/sushi.
I didn't thin my dressing with water, and it was creamy and delicious. My salad contained romaine lettuce, carrots, red cabbage, scallions, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, cilantro, and chickpeas.
It is like butter :)
