I'm 18, a vegetarian, and in remission of stage 4 lymphoma cancer, so I have been wanting to make my own healthy food. I felt the need to comment on this recipe because I just made this for myself for dinner and IT TASTED SO GOOD! I can't even express how surprised I was that it tasted so delicious, considering it is veggie-based. The only differences I made in mine is that I squeezed 2 limes into my dressing instead of 1, and I used chive and onion cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese. It was so delicious! I really recommend anyone to try this. :)

Let me being by saying I'm so sorry for doubting you! I saw your recipe and knew I wanted to try it but I didn't want to add honey to the dressing. There was just something about a sweet avocado dressing that was a turn off for me. Anyhow, I looked at a few other avocado dressing recipes and combined ingredients from a few different ones. But something was missing!! So I caved and added just a tad bit of honey--VOILA! It really rounded out the taste of this dressing w/o adding sweetness. THANK YOU!

Sounds incredible! I am obsessed with avocado and have actually been trying to eat more wraps as opposed to sandwiches to save on calories. Thanks for this!
