Avocado Lime Dressing – Quick, Easy, Light and Low Carb

Avocado Lime Dressing

Making homemade dressings is really such a simple thing to do, but a lot of us (myself included) don’t bother to do it a lot of the time. Many store bought versions are packed with extra and unnecessary calories, preservatives and sugar. This Avocado Lime Dressing only takes a couple minutes to make and it tastes better than anything you will find in the grocery store. This dressing is packed with healthy ingredients. It is low calorie and low carb with only 1 net carb. It is creamy and delicious, and you can probably fool your kids into eating something healthy without them even knowing it! You can pour this all over your favorite salad, dip any meat in it, use it as a marinade, put it on your tacos and so much more!

Chicken is definitely the protein that we use most frequently for dinner. I am all about seafood, but my husband doesn’t love it, and we try to limit the amount of red meat that we eat (though we still love it!).

To avoid falling into a rut of the same old boring chicken dishes, I try to create unique recipes that have lots of flavor and exciting twists to keep things anything but dull. This Chipotle Chicken Flatbread is a great way to change up dinnertime. It is loaded with lots of great veggies, just the right amount of spice and tons of flavor!
