viva this dressing: creamy avocado

If you’ve been keeping up with Viva Catalina, you should know I’m long past the days of chowing down on salads bathed in that sweet orange sauce.

Instead, I’m all about making dressings from scratch. As avocados are my most favorite food in the world, it’s only natural that creamy avocado dressing is the first post in a new series on Viva Catalina.


... call me?

Going forward, Viva C will feature a weekly homemade dressing, vinaigrette or marinade. These featured recipes will not only keep your salads whole and healthy, but they’ll also work great on meats, seafood, veggies and more.

four ingredients of goodness

This creamy avocado dressing only requires four ingredients, and it’s so simple to make. I used it on my kale salad tonight, plus as a topping for my veggie burger too!
