Juuust as I’m getting back into the swing of things, it’s the weekend! How am I supposed to be productive now? I suppose I won’t complain about that. I’m back in Bozeman, walking normally (although still rather tired), and eager to get stuff done.
By get stuff done I mean clean the house because we have guests coming next week, and this house has maybe never had a real deep clean. Oops.
But instead of cleaning this weekend, we have a social agenda that is almost too much. Two parties tonight, two parties tomorrow night, multiple sporty engagements (nordic and downhill skiing), and generally a lot to do! Tough life, eh?
Today I bring you my first EVER salad dressing. You know I’m not generally a salad eater. It’s not that I don’t like them, I just never really have them around or feel like putting in the effort to make (not to mention eat) them. Last week, however, in the midst of my healthy-tapering-mode, I decided salad was a good choice. It totally was! Avocado dressing makes it feel really luxurious and rich, too!
Making this dressing couldn’t be easier: toss everything into your food processor, process away, and voilà! Dressing! As for the salad, I’ll leave that up to you. I used a baby greens mix, with apple, chevre, toasted pecans, and black beans. Yum!Print
