From the Author Heidi Allison:
This recipe delivers all the rich flavors of a full-fat salad dressing that you crave, but at a fraction of the fat. The secret is to use a buttery California or Mexican Hass (thick, bumpy black-skinned) avocados rather than their thin, green-skinned, watery Florida cousins.
This salad dressing freezes well, and doubles as a reduced –fat guacamole topping for tacos. Avocados are not only a good source of healthy monounsaturated fats, they also contain hefty amounts of potassium (60 % more than bananas!). This important mineral is linked to lowering high blood pressure, a silent killer that contributes to heart disease, congestive heart failure and strokes.
Hypertension affects more than 50 million Americans, and 90% of adults over the age of 50 will develop high blood pressure as they age.
