Grapefruit, Avocado, Quinoa, and Spinach Salad with Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

Have you heard of green goddess dressing? I have no idea where it originates from, but I am newly obsessed. According to the ever informative Wikipedia green goddess dressings typically include mayonnaise and sour cream among many other herbs and spices. I try to eat less mayonnaise and sour cream due to their high saturated fat content, so I have developed this version of green goddess dressing using a better for you green fat…AVOCADO! This dressing is so good, I want to put it on everything. It goes perfectly with the last grapefruit recipe of the week: Avocado, Grapefruit, Quinoa, and Spinach Salad.

Grapefruit and avocado are a match made in heaven. Seriously, if you look up grapefruit salads, they almost always include avocado. I think its because the creamy texture of the avocado helps to balance out the bitter flavor of the grapefruit. I went ahead and took my avocado obsession up a notch by including it in the dressing for my grapefruit and avocado salad.
