Avocados are one of my favorite foods, but many people avoid them because of their fat and calorie content. In reality, avocados are quite healthy even with the calories and fat. Avocado is high in fiber, folate, potassium, and vitamins K, C, B5, B6, and good fats. It has been shown to lower cholesterol, fight cancer, regulate blood sugar, and reduce inflammation. The great thing about avocado is that it is creamy, which makes it a great substitute for mayonnaise on sandwiches and in salad dressings. This salad dressing has no mayonnaise and only a little healthy olive oil for added fat, and is wonderfully delicious. It is great on all types of salads or as a dip for raw vegetables. I ate it here over some home grown tomatoes that my dad managed to produce in November after a frost. It was a yummy taste of summer. For information on how to slice an avocado click here.
