We absolutely love a good avocado in our house. Thus this Easy Avocado Sauce and Salad Dressing is a favorite option when we are serving up many of our favorite dishes. It works great alongside some grilled chicken, spinach, and tomato in a mason jar salad, or ideally over a homemade burrito bowl instead of cheese. We are sure you'll love this recipe on your favorite dishes!

While we typically use this on a salad, I am often found drizzling over grilled chicken, tofu, or even just over rice and vegetables. Avocado is one of those healthy fats that we all need to enjoy more in our diets. On Weight Watchers, it is best to weigh the avocado using your digital kitchen scale rather than just using a measurement like ½ avocado, etc. This is due to the fact that avocado comes in varying sizes, and you want the most accurate value possible.
If you want to build a mason jar salad as shown in the pictures, use our great Grilled Lime Tequila Chicken Breasts as a fun addition that beautifully complements the avocado sauce recipe.
