And can we talk about the avocado lime dressing?! So smooth and creamy and…sooo delicious! I’m a sucker for avocado sauce, and you know this one is a good one when you want to eat it by the spoonful.

I have heard that people go crazy over Chick-fil-A Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing – let me tell you, they have not tried this healthy version!
