A few summers ago at the Vail Farmer's Market, I came across a booth for Alpine Avocado Vinaigrette. It is a local company and a fantastic dressing, dip and marinade. It has finally made its way into Whole Foods here in Colorado. You can find it in the salad dressing section or you can order it online. As much as I love to support local businesses, I have created my own avocado vinaigrette.
I have to admit, I have never used Alpine Avocado Vinaigrette or my own as a salad dressing. I am sure it would be awesome on a salad, especially one topped with salmon sashimi or seared ahi. I use it all the time to drizzle over my sashimi, it's the best with wasabi! It would be great in chicken salad, egg salad or any wrap. I already have a recipe planned to incorporate it into and will be trying it as a marinade soon!
