Creamy Avocado Sesame Lime Dressing

This creamy avocado sauce goes well with just about any salad, vegetable, bread, or meat. Today I’m spreading it on a Flourless Blender Bread sandwich. Lusciously smooth and bursting with flavor, this thick spread reminds me of a Mexican spicy guacamole or mayo married to a Middle-Eastern sesame tahini. Yum! Just blend and serve. It’s infinitely versatile. Make a 5-minute meal with Zoodles Quick & Easy. Or enjoy as a snack on Paleo Onion Herb Crackers.  

Avocado helps to optimize brain function, and is sometimes called the world’s most perfect food. Avocado has also been found to help prevent Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Sesame seeds and tahini are a tasty source of fiber, copper, manganese, and many other minerals. Lime adds refreshing zest, vitamin C, and enhanced immune boosting power. Toasted sesame oil gives a hint of Asian flavor, and is optional. Makes 1 1/2 cups sauce. Enjoy!
