Skinny Buttermilk Avocado Dressing

So I took a little vacation...but I'm back! School is out and for the past few days I have just been enjoying myself!  I am also getting ready for camp to start next week! So, I have exactly one week of summer vacation :) Today, I wanted to tell you about my latest developments in the wedding planning extravaganza that is my life, but I have to wait a patient.  

I also started marathon training this week! So far, I have gone for two 3 mile runs and this weekend is the first long run, 6 miles.  I am pretty pumped!

Today I decided to make my own salad dressing because I want to start getting ready to have healthy lunches lined up for camp.  I made this Skinny Buttermilk Avocado Dressing after adapting a similar recipe over at Skinny Taste.  It is really creamy, super tasty, just a little spicy, and tastes a little sweet from the buttermilk.  I am excited to tell you all about the salads I come up with! I also think that this dressing would be great over a burrito bowl or some sort of spicy chicken.  It is really great and versatile!
