Having versatile ingredients in the kitchen allows you to prepare fresh and healthy meals for you and your family. This month, our regular contributor, Fabienne Sayarath of the Kitchen Addict shares with us a simple Avocado Lime Dressing, made with our WILD Virgin Coconut Oil. Whilst it may be a dressing, it can be easily adapted into a sauce or a dip and paired with any protein or vegetable. Keep this one hand for busy weeknights or pot luck parties!
Avocado Lime Dressing
Good ripe avocados are not always easy to find in my land, so you essentially hit jackpot when you find them. I grabbed a few the other day at the wet market and made salads but it got a bit boring so I attempted to make a dressing. The most common recipe you can find uses lemon juice and cilantro. I used instead lime juice to pair it with coconut oil. I also used lemon pepper (I love this stuff, especially as a rub for my chicken roast or for grilled fish).
This recipe is a healthier alternative to caesar dressing for instance as it pairs very nicely with chicken, or as dressing for pasta salad. It can also make a great dip (like a guacamole) if you use less liquid in the recipe – for tortilla chips, carrot sticks, fries, sweet potato fries (I am currently obsessed with sweet potato fries and chipotle mayo for no particular reason other than it’s delicious). You can also add a bit of paprika for a little kick. You will always find ways to use it if you have a jar of it in the fridge. I promise 🙂

6 Tbsp water (less for a dip ; adjust the consistency to your taste)
