Does anyone ever plan for avocados?? I have never thought…ok NEXT WEEK I will make blah blah so I better go buy avocados now so they will be ripe !! For me avocados are an immediate purchase,for the meal I am having today or tomorrow. I will even admit to running out real quick to grab one. Don’t get me wrong I super love them,I have made pudding with them,shakes,pies,put them on everything. The trouble comes in the form of needing to use the “extra” ones before they go bad. I have found that avocados make a delightful dressing.

- salt and pepper to taste
- Puree everything in a blender until smooth. Store in fridge and finish within a few days.
* Leave the seeds in for more heat or remove them for less.
** Use more buttermilk to make it thinner or less to make it thicker.
