Avocado Dressing

I'll admit, this is kind of a cheat.  It's almost exactly a guacamole recipe with yogurt.  It's still thick enough to be a dip, but thin enough to use as a sandwich spread.  Add a few tablespoons of milk, and you have a pourable dressing.  I put it on my black bean burgers.  A lot also ended up on the side salad, mostly dripped there off the back side of the burger.  Best of all, there is nothing in it that is bad for you.  I didn't even add salt, just spices.

The food processor was already dirty from the burgers, so I rinsed it out and used it for this.  You can do it by hand if you don't mind a few lumps.

1 large, soft avocado
*1 single-serve container fat-free plain Greek yogurt (5-ish oz)
2 Tb fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 tsp paprika
*1/4 tsp garlic powder
juice of 1 lime

1.  Scoop flesh out of avocado and discard pit.  Place all ingredients in food processor.  Run until smooth.

2.  If not using immediately, refrigerate with plastic wrap touching surface to reduce discoloration.

Makes about 1 cup
