Hi guys! Happy Friday!

Today I’m taking a break from all things fall and sharing with you one of my newest favorite salads.

A lot of people seem to like the combination of avocado and cilantro in a salad dressing. Including me!

But I prefer my ordinary tomato-cucumber salad with parsley.

So I had to experiment and try a creamy green dressing with avocado and parsley. The result was surprisingly good! A very light, creamy and flavorful addition to this boring at first sight salad.

Make it for lunch, dinner or a party. I just can’t live without fresh salads! And I make a tomato cucumber salad almost every day. But this time I was craving something light. Something different.

The avocado dressing was the perfect addition. They contain a large variety of nutrients, fiber, vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. I try to always have avocados in the fridge for my every day salads and now dressings.

I did not use any yogurt in the dressing so both the salad and dressing are vegan.

Hope you get to try it.

Have a great weekend!
