Avocado Oil & Balsamic Vinegar

IMG_20160601_102848.jpg

If you’re like me, you’re constantly on the lookout for some good avocados that are ready to eat. One day when I was at one of my favorite grocery stores, Sprouts, all the avocados were rock hard. I asked myself, what’s the next best thing? Then, I thought about avocado oil! After some quick research on my smart phone, I purchased a beautiful bottle of 100% pure avocado oil.

At home, I discovered two avocado oil pairings that complemented  veggies and fruits. And, these pairings are definitely worthy to be a salad dressing. The major difference here are the choice of balsamic vinegar and their age.

Vegetables:

  • 5 tablespoons of avocado oil
  • 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar (Less aged so that it gives more of its acidic taste). Ideal for 2-3 servings.

Ideas for veggies: steamed broccoli, kale, asparagus, zucchini.

Fruits:

  • 5 tablespoons of avocado oil
  • 3 tablespoons of aged balsamic vinegar (More aged so that it gives more of a sweet taste with a viscous texture. The brand I love is from Trader Joe’s). Ideal for 2-3 servings.

Ideas for fruits: strawberries, peaches, apricots, pineapples.

Enjoy!
