Awesome avocado dressing

Fancy kicking about amongst the flowers and picking avocados with me? A good avo brings me such happiness.

If you visit my parents you will go home with avocados.
If my brother visits London and doesn't bring me avocados and lemons, he will be in my bad books. Unbelievably he's 'not too fussed either way about them' so I felt I owed it to him to win him over. Would it be cheating to start my mission with a juicy steak?

Avocados have a lot of calories in them and their fair share of fat yadda yadda, I can't believe this stops people from eating them. They are SO GOOD FOR YOU. Full of antioxidants and good for your eyes, heart and unborn baby in wombs everywhere. They also taste delicious and the cold, smooth, buttery texture is like nothing else. Slather in your hair, on your toast, or blend it into a dressing. You can make it thinner than mine to coat your lettuce leaves but I've made mine like a loose guacamole.

Avocado dressing
Blend the below in a food processor, taste and season accordingly.
2 ripe avocados 
1 tbsp chopped chives
2 tbsp coriander
1 lemon, 1 lime juiced
1/2 tsp Chilli pepper / cayenne pepper
Lots of Maldon sea salt
Splashes of rice wine vinegar
You can finish with olive oil or water or more lime if you like...


good times tora said...

you've changed your blog design back! My computer is much happier now!!

I don't like avocados...I have really tried, but I just don't. Steak looks GOOD!

Milli said...

haha that's because avocado is a fruit! Yes back to old blog layout, and my banner has reappeared just like that.

You've redesigned your blog?! It looks very pretty - I need to sort mine out but no idea where to start!

As for avocados, they are possibly my favourite thing in the world. If there's a delicious sauce made out of them and steak involved, I'm in!

Susan said...

LOVE. Methinks you will have to bring some avocados to the BBQ contest this weekend! Wonderful photos. I especially like the one of you squeezing the lemon.

Milli said...

thelittleloaf-I have reverted to the old blog, I am now getting lots of spam :(

susan-aaah I didn't see this in time!

Reena said...

This dressing looks incredible. Going to try it asap!!

Jenny said...

This post is so compelling that I have actually been distracted from the Eurovision voting. I adore avocado, could live on guacamole and love the look of your dressing. I had an amazing desert made with avocado, cacao and orange the other day - must seek it out.
The flower meadow and avocado pic is glorious - where is your parents' house? Is it a Casa Rural/hotel? How can I find out more?
Really loving your blog

Milli said...

Hi Jenny, thanks for your comment. People can be a bit anti avo in dessert but I think if you get it right it can be wonderful!(please send me your recipe) My parents' house is a BnB/casa rural you can find it here I can see your name has come up in 'blue' so, off to check your blog!

Shu Han said...

Haha I love the title of this post.

I love love love avocado, in sweet or in savoury, the weirdest I've come across is an avocado cake, which I totally am going to try once I get my baking groove back! The dressing looks (and I have no doubt tastes) awesome, especially tossed through that gorgeous pink steak and bright greens. Good one!!

Shu Han said...

ps. do prefer this blog layout! easier to comment!
