Bare Mixers Giveaway and Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing

IMG_4048

Over the past few weeks, we have literally been eating like the Easter Bunny. Salad…almost every night. When Whole Foods opened a couple of weeks ago, the kind rep from Earthgrown Organics gave me a few Buy One Get One Free coupons. Then, the extra nice people over at Sprouts decided to run a sale of BOGO free salads. What does that mean? A LOT of free salad! So I had to get creative. This creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing was a great alternative to classic vinaigrettes. It was perfect on taco salad and a great and tasty spread on sandwiches too.

Now, what is a taco salad without a delicious margarita? Non festive. And I hate being non festive. That’s where this delicious Bare Mixers comes into play. After all, what’s the point of eating salads all week just to¬†an extra 1000 calories from the WAY overly sweet grocery store margarita mix? Bare Mixers is an all natural, low-calorie and agave sweetened Margarita Mix. It has the perfect balance between sweet and sour. When we first tried the mixer, it was served as a whiskey sour which was equally as delicious as the margarita.
