Bare Mixers Giveaway and Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing

Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing

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.

    Hi, I’m Tara and I’m from South Carolina. My favorite cocktail is a real mojito with muddled fresh mint. So refreshing and summery. Can’t wait to try this recipe; I’ve been eating avocado practically every day and would like to use it in different ways. This sounds delicious!

    I have been looking for a recipe like this! It says 1/2 Greek yogurt… that means 1/2 cup, right?

    I’m extremely lactose intolerant (yes, especially in yogurt) so can you suggest something to substitute for the Greek yogurt?

    • theseasidebaker March 6, 2014 at 6:19 am #

      Ohh that’s a good question. Is there a Lactose-Free version of greek or plain yogurt maybe Kefir based?

    This dressing is “fantastic” on homade Taco salad minus the shell !!! It makes a complete meal in minutes.

    Is the greek yogurt in the recipe for taste or texture? Do you think I could use cashews instead? I am dairy free, but I think this recipe sounds great.

    • theseasidebaker August 15, 2014 at 2:44 pm #

      Hi Stephanie! The yogurt is used for texture therefore I think that cashews would be fine it just may be a little thicker.
