California Avocado Yogurt Dressing

California Avocado Yogurt Dressing

Author: Manuel Villacorta, MS, RD

This low-sodium and low-cholesterol yogurt dressing combines probiotics from the Greek yogurt and fiber from the California Avocado, both of which help to maintain gut health. California Avocados contain mono- and polyunsaturated “good” fat, which makes them a great substitute for foods rich in saturated fats. Enjoy this dressing on your favorite salad or as a dip knowing you are getting a good source of vitamin B2 (15% DV), vitamin B12 (15% DV) and vitamin K (15 % DV).
