It turns out that when I met with six-time Canadian Champion and World Silver Medalist Joannie Rochette that one of her favourite recipes includes Avocados from Mexico. She’s currently an ambassador for Almond Breeze, so she suggests using their almond milk in the recipe, and why not! Here’s her salad dressing, why not whip some up this weekend and be sure to add extra avocados to the salad too for an added health boost!
