2-Ingredient Side Dish: Avocado and Dressing

The first of our 3-ingredient recipe guest posts comes from Jenny Rosenstrach, blogger behind Dinner a Love Story, former Real Simple editor, author of the soon-to-be-published cookbook Time for Dinner, and subject of a recent article in the New York Times (For Dinner, a Woman Chronicles What’s Been.) Here is her best simple recipe:

It’s not like I’m a competitive person or anything, but when I spied Real Simple’s 3-ingredient dish cover story last week, the first thought I had was, I can beat that! I can do a totally kick-ass 2-ingredient dish. (OK, maybe that was the second thought—the first was I must keep this issue within arms-reach at all times.) 

The specific recipe I am thinking about cannot even be called a recipe it’s so ridiculously simple. It is a halved, pitted avocado filled with salad dressing. Homemade salad dressing is, of course, lovely, but I am equally satisfied with a good Asian ginger or a light balsamic. My husband, who introduced my kids and me to the concoction and in fact ate them all the time when he was a kid, swears there’s nothing better than Wishbone Italian.
