The Three-Ingredient Lunch Superhero

When your co-workers think you're a culinary genius...

Faring Well blogger Jesse Snyder shares her light, fast and delicious avocado dressing recipe and says "don't let your avocados stay home alone while you go to work." 

Being a tahini girl, I hadn't considered much outside the sesame-based dressing realm. Then it happened: I placed an avocado into a mixing bowl and added in some freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt, and pepper. I blended it into creamy green perfection with my immersion blender—slowly adding water to thin it out into a dressing. I tasted the green slurry, and BAM: I was hit in the face with a new favorite dressing! It’s so simple, almost too simple. But there you have it, a little avocado gift to us all—a simple, delicious dressing for every day. 

I like to prep this dressing (and my lunch) as my morning tea steeps. To make a salad base worthy of the simple dressing, I start off by layering brown rice, chickpeas, shaved asparagus, shaved carrots, sliced radishes, and sprouts—or whatever leftover veggies I have on hand—in an airtight container. I then place the avocado dressing in a separate bottle or jar so that the salad remains fresh.

Once you hit your lunch hour at work, douse the salad mix with your new best friend, deflect the envious stares from office mates, and enjoy!
