Spicy avocado marinade

Hi friends! I hope you all had a relaxing memorial day and weekend. We had fun just hanging around town, taking walks, eating with friends, and cuddling with Lewis.

I made this cilantro avocado buttermilk dressing last Friday to go with our dinner salads. Jeff loved it on his but I didn't think it was anything very special. Partially because I put in an entire jalapeno and the spiciness overwhelmed all of the other flavors. Anyway, I had a bunch leftover and decided to use it as a marinade on some chicken breasts a few nights later. It was amazing! Here is the recipe with a few slight changes or you can follow the link for the original


  • 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 small jalapeno
  • 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp chopped scallion or onion ( I didn't have any onion or scallion and it turned out fine)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt and more to taste

  • Method:

    Throw everything into a blender and blend until smooth
    Pour over chicken/turkey/ salmon and let sit refrigerated for a few hours
    grill/bake and enjoy!
