Creamy Mint Infused Avocado Dressing

This Creamy Mint Infused Avocado Dressing is the perfect thing to make ahead of time and use on dishes for the rest of the week.  It is super easy to make and is also a great option for that produce that might be on the verge of going bad.  All you need to do is whip it together in a blender and throw in a jar for the rest of the week.

Avocados have tons of healthy fats and potassium and may even help lower cholesterol levels.  They bring so much flavor to anything you add them to.  The high fat content (keeping in mind they are healthy fats!) helps keep you full for hours.  

Avocado DressingHow many of you have trouble finding the perfect avocado? There are a couple tricks that I use to try and get the perfect little green guy each time.  First, I begin by looking at the color of the exterior of the avocado.  The deeper green is usually a more ripe avocado.  Second, you can feel the firmness of the avocado.  You don’t want one that is super mushy but you don’t want one that is too firm either.  Try to find one that is just slightly soft to the touch.  And my for my final trick, I pop off the brown stem of the avocado to see the color inside.  Usually, if the tip comes off easily and has a nice shade of green, that can indicate the ripeness of the avocado.

Take one avocado, a jalapeno, some garlic, diced tomatoes, limes, onion, water, and mint and combine all together in a blender or food processor.  I love to use this dressing on salads or on my favorite taco recipes.  Check out our 5 Minute Pepperjack Protein Tacos or our Roasted Cauliflower Tacos.  What would you put this creamy avocado dressing on?
