Mexi-Spiced Salad Dressing

One of the ways we maintain Paleo on our busy days/nights is by making large amounts of protein ahead and using it in simple salads and other meals. This is a great example of that. I cooked a 5 lb roast over the weekend and we are able to eat off of it for a couple days. This dressing changes up the flavor enough to give you a unique meal, but without making a separate protein each night. You can use this same idea and mix up the seasonings.

Mexi-Spiced Salad Dressing
1/2 Mashed Avocado
1/4 C Avocado Mayonnaise
1/2 Tbsp Chili Powder
1/2 Tbsp Cumin
1 tsp Dried Cilantro Leaves
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

Mix it all up and enjoy it on a fresh salad.

 (Ours included spinich, tomatoes, cucumbers, bacon crumbles, and leftover roast shredded.)


  1. i am new to paleo-what is avacado mayonnaise?

  2. I linked to it in the recipe. It is a Mayonnaise made with Avocado Oil instead of the traditional Canola oil in the prepared store-bought mayos.
