Zesty Avocado Cilantro Buttermilk Dressing

This is good stuff! Creamy avocado dressing with a little zing from the jalapeño pepper.

Make a boring grilled chicken salad exciting, use it over greens, on a sandwich, and it even makes a great dip if you use a little less buttermilk. This keeps refrigerated a few days without turning brown.

Low-carb, gluten-free, egg-free, vegetarian and delicious!
