Learning to love.

There once was a day when you would have to pay me to eat an avocado. Seriously. They were on the same level as lima beans, eggplant, and … I really can’t think of anything else I don’t like that much.

Then came the cutting out of dairy and I needed SOMETHING to make my chocolate pudding and smoothies thick and creamy. So I caved and began submitting chocolate covered avocados into my diet. The ones I could scavenge from my ravenous 2-year old, that is.

And they weren’t that bad, covered in chocolate. But then again, chocolate covers a multitude of sins. Or is that love… Sometimes I get the two confused.

Kidding. 100% kidding.

After my latest stint with the GAPS intro diet, though, my tastebuds are yet again changing. For the better, I think. I can now handle avocados by their lonesome, without the aid of a chocolate covering

I’ve even started to crave them.

What the what? Something must be wrong with me!

Creamy “Buttermilk” Avocado Dressing

Anyway, now that I’ve added salads into my almost-to-full-GAPS diet, I’m in want of dressings. I’m not too fond of mayonnaise by itself, even my tasty homemade mayo, and olive oil along is a tad bitter. So I needed to come up with something to dress my naked salads. 

Avocados to the rescue!

This dressing is the perfect fit for me! Since the only dairy I can do is cultured and Kerrygold butter, I used sour cream and a little milk kefir to give this creamy dressing its “buttermilk” flair. I also added in a few herbs to give it a little ranch-ish flavor.

If you can’t do cultured dairy – sorry. I’ve got nothin’ for you. You could try using coconut yogurt, but I haven’t tried that and am afraid it would give the dressing a funny taste. If you enjoy coconutty things on your salad, though, be my guest and give it a shot!
