Avocado Buttermilk Dressing

So now that you know how to cut an avocado, let’s put it to good use!  This dressing is creamy and fabulous.  It’s a bit reminiscent of a Green Goddess dressing.  The creamy avocado pairs nicely with the buttermilk, and a bit of basil makes it fresh and summery.  There’s a little kick to it from the pepper and raw garlic to give it some sparkle.  I used this on my favorite meal, taco salad, but this would also be great as just a standard creamy dressing and would go well with grilled vegetables or chicken as well.
